Pathiya Samayal| Postpartum Diet| BM #13

Pathiya samayal is generally special cooking  for mothers after Delivery of a child.
Mainly only black pepper is used and green chilli and red chilli are avoided in most of the food for few days after delivery. This is followed to help the mother recover from her pregnancy and also to serve nutritious food to the baby. When i had a baby one year back, i followed some of them for few days.
Gastric vegetables and food are to be avoided for few months until we feed the baby.
It was really helpful to follow this rule after delivery.There are lot of recipes for pathiya samayal. I will be listing few of them.

This goes to Srivalli's Blogging Marathon 13 Day 2

Manathakkallika vathal Saadham
Manathakkallika vathal 2-3 tea spoons
Sesame oil- 2 tea spoon
Ghee - 1 tea spoon
Cooked Rice- 1/2 cup

In a pan add the sesame oil and fry the vathal until it puffs up.
Take some hot cooked rice, mix the fried vathal and ghee and eat this when it is hot.



Note: We can do the same with Dried Sundakkai also.
This is good to eat at-least once a day for 2-3 months after delivery.
Benefits
This is very good for stomach and will keep the stomach light and prevent from in-digestion.
This does not affect the breast milk in anyways. It is rather good for baby's digestion too which passes through mothers milk.
