Postpartum Diet - Methi Seeds|BM#13

After a long break in Blogging, I am glad to be back and hoping to come back to form again and post many recipes for this year. My 14 month old Toddler keeps me on my toes.
I am also glad to be back to Blogging marathon by Srivalli. When i saw the topic "Postpartum diet" for this marathon. I thought of taking this one and post useful recipes and tips before i forget about them, since it has just been a year.
For today Day 1, We will just see a simple thing to follow everyday for all the breastfeeding ladies.

Fenugreek Seeds (Vendayam in tamil or Methi in Hindi)

Method 1
Take about 2-3 tea-spoons of Fenugreek seeds and allow it to soak in a glass of water for 4-5 hours.
Drink the water and the eat the seeds together.

Method 2
Dry roast the Methi seeds and grind to a smooth powder.
Add to all possible dishes or tea.

It can also be added to dishes like Dosa, Idli, Roti, Sambar, Rasam, tea or any side dishes.

This helps in increasing the supply of breast milk if had regularly.
This really helps to cool our body or is very good for skin.
We can start doing this right from the day of the delivery.

This herbal seeds does not affect the baby in any ways.

Enjoy and i will see you with more tips and recipes tomorrow.
