This drink is great and as I have diabetes it lowers my blood sugar. Is it safe to drink it daily and how many grams of garden cress seeds is safe for daily use. Thank you for great article.
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Thanks for the feedback. You can have 1 serving of this drink daily. However it would be recommended to get a CBC and blood sugar test done at least once in 3 months to keep a check on your haemoglobin and sugar levels. Consult your doctor before you have this drink on a regular basis also.

Can I add some honey to this concoction when giving to my 4.11 year old? Is it safe to give the child this Halim drink on alternate days.. and for how many months can this be taken at a stretch?

Tarla Dalal    Yes you can add a small quantity of honey. Please try a small quantity of this drink and check if you child is able to digest it. The best thing is to do so under your paediatrician''s supervision.

I’m an ardent fan of Tarla Dalal, ma’am and I clove all her recipes. Kindly let me know whether I can mix Haleem seeds with amla juice instead of lemon juice? I get acidity if I drink lemon water on an empty stomach. Thanks in advance.
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Yes you can try with amla juice. Both lemon and almla jucice are a rich source of vitamin C and will help in the absorption of iron from haleem. But since we haven''t tried it, we are not sure about the taste when rested for an hour. Kindly try and share your suggestion with us.
