Hi banupriya,
Its a good time to start solid food to the baby... You can start with ragi...As Priyalokesh said you can prepare ragi yourself or you can buy Manna ragi mix.. its very good..just half tsp of mix in a 1 tumbler of water.. mix it until it cooks.. add formula..For most kids its not advisable to introduce cow's milk before 1 year.. because Cow's milk proteins is hard to digest for the babies so they get lactose intolerant/milk alergy.. so Before using cow's milk/pocket milk ask your doctor...In that case even ghee..

as for the solid foods.. you can give 1/2 to 1 milk bikis/parle g biscuits mashed in the warm water, mashed potato, carrot, applesauce,mashed peas(all mashed.. boil the veggies/fruits and mash it in the mixie).. Ragi(with or without sugar/salt)...6 months.. start with cerlac rice.. easy to digest...first and go on...(first start in the morning or for lunch and introduce for dinner.. as it is heavy and make baby sleep for long time at night).. and you can alternate with manna health mix, with all the grains.. you can give ragi and this alternate days...you can give dalia/pottu kadalai(roast and ground) and prepare same as ragi mix.. by 8 months you can introduce rice...
