Garlic Milk Porridge Recipe / Poondu Paal Kanji | Post Pregnancy Recipes

Garlic Milk Porridge Recipe
This garlic milk porridge is given to lactating moms post delivery.It  is the best medicine for gastric troubles.Garlic and Milk are very good for lactating moms which increases the supply of breast milk.Coconut milk helps in healing the wound so I have added that too in this porridge though thats optional.

Lactating moms should eat nutritious food so that the milk is sufficient for the baby and also to compensate the sharing nutrients to your baby.

The porridge by itself is tasty but if you wish you can pair it up thogayal or sambar,

  1. Very gud and healthy recipe...I also posted this same porridge morning.
    Adding coconut milk is new to me...

  2. A very thoughtful post from you Sharmi :) cheers to you, I used to have just garlic and milk together.. But not often as I began to dislike it because it was too bland. This looks so yummy!! My child is a yr now, can babies have this as well?
