Angaya Podi | Post Natal Food for digestion
Angaya Podi | Post Natal food for digestion
Pregnancy comes with loads of memmories. The most important stage is the postpartum where in a female is physically stressed.Its our mom (or I should rather say grand mother) who comes into picture by supporting us in all possible aspects. One such support is given in the form of post partum food. Though I was served with varieties of postpartum food, one such recipe which I would cherish always is the Angaya Podi with ghee rice.
Angaya Podi includes a lot of spices and each of them have there own health benefits.
Angaya Podi is also consumed during digestive disorders and highly recommended for people with diabetes.  There are various proportions in which this dish is prepared but this is the one which I flicked from my mother’s diary which was given to her when she delivered me and to myself when I delivered my girl.
Angaya Podi is mixed with hot rice and ghee.
