Method for the Halim Recipe

  1. Place the halim or haleem (garden cress seeds) in a glass or a deep bowl. Garden cress seeds are an excellent source of iron. Not only that, they are also rich in folic acid and many other vitamins.

    A.
    Best to have it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.
  2. Q. Can i have halim drink in between meals? 
    A. Yes you can if the morning does not work for you. At office, i have it in the afternoon. 
  3. Q. Can i have the halim drink daily ? 
    A. No, it's best to have it on alternate days. However if you have anaemia and very low haemoglobin levels, you can consume it daily for about a month till you achieve normal haemoglobin levels.

    A. We would not recommend having halim seeds with milk. Halim seeds are a good source of iron which can help in proper supply of oxygen to all cells of the body including hair. We have used lemon juice with it, as it is a good source of vitamin C which helps in iron absorption. 
  7. Q. Can i take halim seeds with apple cider Vinegar and honey? 
    A. Halim seeds are a good source of iron and lemon juice is a good source of vitamin C which helps in iron absorption. Hence this combination has been used in the recipe. We would not recommend using apple cider vinegar.

Can we have halim seeds with lassi
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    No, we would not recommend the use of halim seeds with lassi. This is because lassi is a good source of calcium and halim seeds are known for being a good source of iron and excess calcium hinders iron absorption.

Pls can we use orange instead of lemon for the halim drink.

Tarla Dalal    Yes, you can add orange juice instead of lemon juice. Both are rich in vitamin C and will help in the absorption of iron from halim seeds.
