This is one recipe which i got from my perimma. She gave it to me and mom when i had my baby. It is a best post pregnancy porridge for lactating moms. It increases the supply of breast milk. I used to have this porridge atleast thrice or four times a week. The main thing is the amount of garlic and milk added in this. That is so good for lactating moms. And the addition of long pepper helps clear any throat or cold. And dried ginger powder helps in digestion.
