Omum/ Ajwain/ carom seeds are the lesser-known spice of our Indian Kitchen. Our moms turn their hands whenever we complain about bloating or Indigestion and feed us Omum water by infusing it with water. It has been known for its benefits in treating bloating and diarrhoea due to intestinal inflammation for ages.
As we all know, Carom seeds have Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal properties. We are here, Combining Carom with dry ginger, which has the capacity of cleansing our digestive system and nourishing our body. The taste of the tambli is so refreshing and soothing.
—such a simple preparation.
I learnt this recipe from my Foodie friend, Lakshmi Akka.
Carom seed/ omum – ½ tsp
Grated dry ginger – ¼ tsp
Ghee or coconut oil – ½ tsp
Grated Fresh Coconut – ½ cup
Buttermilk – 1 serving spoon
Take ½ tsp of ghee or oil, fry omum and dry ginger.
-Grind fried items, coconut, salt and water to make a smooth paste.
-Add buttermilk adjust the consistency by adding water.
-If you like seasoning on tambli like me, please go ahead and heat some ghee add cumin and curry leaves. Pour on Tambli and enjoy it as a soothing drink or with Hot Rice.
