This nutritious mix is considered "the most essential" food while new mom is recovering after the birth and needs to regain her strength and energy ,while keeping up her milk supply for her new born. Usually consumed as long as mom is feeding her baby ,very popular grandma recommended recipe among Indian and Pakistani families for a new mom.
This can be a very unique gift for new moms.I made this mix for my friend and packed it in a cookie tin box as a new mom's gift.

1cup Raw Almonds
1cup Raw Cashews
1/2cup Unsalted Pistachios
1/4 cup roasted grated coconut (optional)

1cup Raisins or dried cherries
1cup Ghee or clarified Butter

To make the Mix
Heat ghee in a frying pan on medium flame.Fry the almonds until brown and set aside. Now fry the cashews and Pistachios until light brown and set aside. Finally fry the raisins until plump and set aside
Mix all the fried nuts ,cool them and Process\blend them to a coarse powder.Mix in the raisins,roasted rava,coconut and sugar.Store in a tight container.Nursing mom should eat 1 tablespoon twice a day for enhancing the milk supply .

Storage life is about 6 months in an air tight container

Hi Yasmeen,

Is this mix to be boiled in water/milk and then eaten so that rava gets cooked?

Thanks for the lovely collection of nursing moms recipes.


Yasmeen said...

Vandana ,this is a ready to eat mix.No cooking needed.the Rava is nicely roasted,you can skip the rava if desired. Or can also make kheer with the mixture and milk:)
