be patient and keep trying deepa. some babies accept readily, some not... offer the food again after a few days....eventually she will try it out..

add carrot in moong daal mixed it properly...may be ur baby is much fond of salty foods rather than sweet like mine😉 my 2.6 years son prefer salty food but my 9 yes is just opposite☺

As she is just 6 months... her taste buds yet to develop. And baby may not like variety all of a sudden. Be patient and slowly introduce. Being a mom..we will  be in a hurry to feed all and make them strong. Continue with BM /fm. And it's fine if she initially not eating many things. If you force kids...they may not like them at all. Don't force feed. Feed wat she likes. Some day she will ask you to feed when you are eating. Not just taste...some kids don't like the texture as wel. Try with water melon, mango, masoori dal.
Thanks for the tag @asha chaudhry
