    Re: how to consume garlic

    dear san,
    if it is for medical purpose then u can only boil in milk and take it or raw, but if u should add garlic in food then the best way is to grind it with other ingredients that go into food like the aloo mutter base gravy or chana and many other north indian stuff we have garlic and once u fry them well the smell is not there in fact it becomes more aromatic.

    hope been of help regards sunkan

    Re: how to consume garlic

    u know san,
    we need to take garlic thats all, for the breast milk, that is what ur mother is asking u to take now, when we give birth, my mother used to boil the garlic one handfull mind u, then add some jaggery on to it with some ghee, making it like a legiyam, and the first thing in the morning they will wake u with this, then a bundle of pan to be taken which i used to refuse, as i had good digestion i dont want to masticate like a cow i said, but they have their reasons, these are not only for us but for the baby's growth too...so try some boiled ones, add some flavours and take it, be a good girl now,:)regards sunkan

    Re: how to consume garlic

    Dear sarnvi
    garlic can be made into lehyam
    here is the recipe /can be taken after the childbirth for 5 days
    you get belched garlic in usa. dry these in sun for 7 days.[half kg of garlic] you get this panavelam or olebella in kannada available in mangalore
    buy the first quality. take the coconut milk in 3 stages thick medium and watery. take the waterypart boil the garlic in slow fire and add medium and thick subsequently. add the velam. it will become dark like lehyam and add hand full of ghee. this taken for 5 days after the child birth ,increases the milk
    and immunity system. no smell. incidentally i do not take garlic. i do not like the smell.
    with regards
    subbi

    Hi there Im sorry I cant help you on this. I dont mind the smell of garlic but after I consume it no matter the form; fresh, powder, whatever, i get violently sick. I honestly wouldnt worry about eating garlic. It may have alot of benefits to you but there are other things that you will be able to tfind out there that give you the same results. Talk to you dr or look around the net for substitutes.
