Panjeeri (or Panjiri) is a tasty Pakistani postpartum healing and lactation food that is perfect for providing nourishment and energy to new moms.
PANJEERI – A TRADITIONAL HEALING FOOD
We truly believe in traditional South Asian food wisdom. Our ancestors may not have studied the compounds of food in laboratories, but they observed the effects it had on their bodies. Using that wisdom, they made food that was healing, nourishing, and appropriate for individual needs and requirements.
Labor is very taxing to the body. In Western culture, it’s often overlooked how much healing women really need. That’s why I turn to traditional ayurvedic foods that consider the postpartum nutritional needs of recovering and nursing women.
WHATS INSIDE OUR PANJEERI?
Panjeeri is similar to muesli or granola, except next-level healthy (proudly biased opinion). It’s a mashup of whole-wheat flour, fine semolina, nuts, seeds, and herbs. We basically roast the entire South Asian/superfood section of our pantry in ghee, mix it all up, and we get delicious panjeeri!
