  • For thousands of years and through many civilizations, the humans have known about these oilseeds. They are extracted from the widely known Opium Poppy flower, with the scientific name of Papaver Somniferum. To give you an idea of what Poppy seeds look like, just like in the image above, they are tiny spherical seeds that could either be grayish-blue, dark blue or white in color. Dry Poppy seed pods is where the ripe seeds come from. European, Jewish and Indian cuisines happen to include a lot of this ancient spice in them. The seeds could be used whole or ground. Poppy seeds are available in the market in the form of intact seeds, paste or as oil. Fun Fact: There are around 900,000 Poppy seeds in a pound.
  • Have you ever pondered on how one can find peace and balance in their life with just the help of some colors that exist in mother nature? We sometimes feel different emotions while watching a color. For instance, white feels pure, red feels warm, and blue feels cold. These colors play an important role to control our emotions and Doshas.

A healthy recipe

  • For this recipe, take a few fresh Neem leaves and a spoonful of Shatavari powder. Grind the Neem leaves and add the powder to it. Ensure that the paste is thick and consistent.
  • How to use: Consume the paste mix early in the morning. If swallowing the thick paste is a problem, you can also dilute it with some warm water.
  • Purpose: This paste contains Neem and Shatavari, both of which have been described as being potent cures for sickness and fevers. The recipe combines the natures of both the ingredients to increase the efficacy of treatment.

That's all for this week at Amrutam! :)
