    Re: Food during lactation

    ofcourse, water is not safe now a days, as its rainy season, but 1 or 2 drops of raisin water does not do any harm, or you can very well get the otc gas relief medicine with the advice of doctor for the constipation. Plums are the same only color varies, what ever you give boil the fruit. and mash the fruit and give it to the baby i the baby is ready for solid food. You can start the mashed fruit and vegetables as early as 4 months. if everything must be boiled first and pureed next.

    Also, please advice the name of plums .When can we start giving juice of plum? Here in Tamilnadu, red coloured plums available only during the season ( april -june ). Is that OK?

    Dill Leaves:
    These leaves induce milk secretion. It is a good source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.It is rich in many vital vitamins including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A, -carotene, vitamin-C . Dill seed / oil can also be used if dill leaves are not available. Many recipes available in net about dill leaves. It is known as "sada kupi" in Tamil and "sheppu" in Marathi These leaves are easily available in Bangalore. These leaves has a unique flavour. I took little time to get used to this flavour.
    My way of adding it to food
    1. Chop the bunch of leaves and add it in paruppu adai / ragi adai.
    2. Instead of adding methi ( vendhaya keerai) in aloo methi recipe, add the chopped dill leaves.
    3. Chapathi:
    Chop the bunch of leaves. Mix the leaves with 200 gm of wheat flour. Add pinch of turmeric and salt . Mix all the ingredients well and knead into dough. Then , roll into chapathi.
    4. Regular Bonda:
    While making regular bonda, onion, green chilli , and coriander leaves are added. Equal amount of coriander and dill leaves can be added while making bondas.

    Ellu/Black Sesame Maavu:
    This is prepared with Black Sesame (Ellu) seeds.Black sesame seeds is one of the food that promote lactation.
    Few women feels stressed after delivery so they need to consume food rich in Niacin . Niacin enhances GABA activity inside the brain, which in turn helps reduce anxiety and distress . Please avoid this dish during first 2 months after delivery as some Women get periods upto 2 months after delivery. The reason is that it increases body heat which cause ovulation.
    Nutrition Details:
    Black sesame seeds are rich in iron , calcium , manganese, magnesium zinc, selenium, phosphorus and copper. It is good source of mono unsaturated fatty acids.They are very good sources of B-complex vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, thiamin (vitamin B1), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), and riboflavin.100 g of sesame contains 97 g of folic acid, about 25% of recommended daily intake.Niacin is another B-complex vitamin found abundantly in sesame. About 4.5 mg or 28% of daily-required levels of niacin is provided by just 100 g of seeds. Niacin helps reduce LDL-cholesterol levels in the blood. In addition, it enhances GABA activity inside the brain, which in turn helps reduce anxiety and neurosis(is a class of functional mental disorders involving distress).

    Ingredients:
    Black Sesame seeds : 400 gm
    White Sesame seeds : 100 gm
    Karupatti : 300 gm
    Ragi powder : 50 gm
    Water : 150 ml

    Preparation:
    1. Dry Roast the black and white seeds separately. Roast till the seeds completely pops . So , use a bigger utensil and do the roasting in a slow flame .Then, allow it to cool. Once it is cool, dehusk the sesame seeds ( atleast upto 25 % ) . Dehusking is a 2 step process. First,rub the black sesame seeds between 2 hands to remove the skin or rub the seeds against the Bamboo Muram. Second step is to put the seed in muram and swing the the muram up/down to remove the husks. De-husking removes the oil smell from the dish .This is the time consuming step. See Picture 1.
    2. After de-husking, mix the sesame seeds together . Grind the seeds using small jar in batches. Grind the seeds into powder in pulse mode for a minute . Don't continuously grind the seeds i.e. bring the bottom powder to the top using spoon and then grind again. Picture 2 for the shows the sesame powder.
    3. Mix the Ragi in 50ml of the water. Heat 100 ml of water and bring it to boil. Once it is hot, simmer the stove and add ragi water slowly to remove lumps. Stir it continuously for 5 minutes and bring it semi solid texture. Allow it to warm. See picture 3 and 4 which shows semi solid cooked ragi .
    4. Pound the karupatti into powder.
    5. Divide the sesame powder, karupatti powder and ragi into batches. Grind each batch in small jar in order to mix the ingredients.
    6. Now , put all the batches in bigger bowl and mix it well. Then, store it in air tight container. See picture 5.
    7. This dish is more tastier on the second day.
