Todays recipe is one brought to us by Pooja Mansukhani of Dubai. She has done a lot of research on “phakki” which is a home made herbal concoction for lactant mothers. This wonder concoction is excellent for overall well being. This is specially for aftercare after delivery but you can also take it for ailments such a muscle or backache. This is an excellent home remedy which our grandmothers used to give us. Many recent mothers have this as its effect is so good on them and on their nursing baby. I myself have taken “phakki” after i gave birth to my childern and it did me well. It also brings your pre pregnancy state of body back to normal soon. This wonder blend has many many benefits and no harm.
NITU DIDI TIP: Make sure you measure out all the ingredients correctly and place them on a clean dry plate. If you cannot get some of the ingredients, you can also make this phakki without it. The basic ingredients very important for this have their english translation. If you can get all the ingredients thats a real BOON. Use a clean blender to make this phakki and grind it very fine. The magic bullet is a good blender that blends small amount of spices. To buy it do visit my ONLINE STORE. Also do share this recipe with all those who need it. Please do feel free to share this recipe with all who need it.
Once again I thank Pooja Mansukhani for going through all the trouble to thorougly research this and also to make it, take a pic and share the recipe with all of us.
TIP GIVEN TO ME BY PADU MELWANI: To get a good amount of baby milk while breast feeding make sure you eat a lot of cumin seeds (jeera/cominos) in your diet. One way to ensure you get your cumin seeds intake on a daily basis is to make dough for chapattis . Roll out one chappati and sprinkle a good amount of cumin seeds over it. Cover with the other chapatti and then roll out a bit and cook your chapatti. This should be eaten both during pregnancy and also after delivery and while breast feeding.
Measure all the ingredients well and blend them in a blender till very smooth. Keep in a clean air tight bottle and use a teaspoon every morning with a glass of warm water. You will not believe how good this is for you!
