NEPALI RICE PUDDING (AYURVEDIC)

Vegetarian, Healthy Eating, Organic, Ayurveda, Nourishing Newborn Mothers

Ideas and recipes from sunny Australia, for nourishing,
wholesome foods, prepared
with holistic ingredients that
love you back.

A friend has recently gifted me with a beautiful e-book called 'Nourishing Newborn Mothers' to help prepare for the postpartum time of our first baby and I am absolutely in love with it.
 
The author, Julia Jones, is an Ayurvedic postnatal doula and has created something really special:
A little compendium sharing the foundation philosophy of Ayurveda with ancient wisdom and insights any newborn mother, in fact, any woman can benefit from.
 
Julia believes that birth is about making mums too and you can sense her passion to create a renaissance in the way we care for newborn mothers.
 
The book is filled with super delicious and easy to make recipes to heal your mind, body and soul after childbirth.
 
I have cooked, baked and eaten myself through most of them and will happily assure you that your whole family will be delighted to taste any of these dishes.
 
Julia has kindly allowed me to share my favourite recipe – Nepali Rice Pudding and her thoughts on creating it: "This is my simplified (and less authentic) version of a traditional Nepali first food for mothers after birth, which I originally learned from Sarita Shrestha, who is a classically trained

INGREDIENTS

 

5 cups pure water

1 cup basmati rice

¼ cup jaggery

¼ cup ghee

2 tsp ginger powder

2/3 tsp cinnamon powder

pinch nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup milk of your choice

 

 

 

METHOD

 

Bring water and rice to a boil in large pot. Simmer, stirring occasionally until it begins to thicken. This should take about 20 minutes.

 

Add the sugar and spices and ghee. You may need to add an extra cup of water at this stage if your pudding is too thick.

 

Continue to cook slowly; stirring as needed. When gelatinous consistency add milk. Cook for a few more minutes to thicken.

 

Serve hot, with sugar and ghee to taste. Serve as desired throughout the day.

“The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail–when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labor pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pains of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred.”
