I decided to take her some chicken soup around and make some of this mixture which a friend reccommended. The friend managed to sustain a nasty head injury when she fell off the back of a motorbike and her mum made this for her to help her recover and to gain strength.
Equals measures of:
Pumpkin Seeds (Char Magaz)
I used 250g bags of each and ended up with a big batch
Break all of the ingredients down in a grinder and mix so that you have a rough powder.
You can eat it as it is and my friend reccommended that one spoon a day is enough as it is supposed to be strong stuff (and "hot" under the traditional Pakistani way of looking at food, so too much isn't ideal). I found it slightly dry, but decided it was medicinal so this was okay. My husband and mum on the other hand, felt that it needed taste, so mum has added a handful of ground "gur" or raw sugar to the mix.
