Ashali, Garden cress or Halim seeds are one of the prominent ayurvedic ingredient used for the preparation of Karkidaka Marunnu Kanji or Medicinal porridge. These light red coloured seeds have a similar size as that of cumin seeds. If you combine Garden Cress seeds with liquid, minutes later it expands and become very gelatinous in its texture. The outer layers of the seeds would soak up water so it can surround the seed with moisture while it germinates. It makes the seeds swell up, and turns real soft. Medicinal properties of garden cress (Lepidium sativum) have been recognized for centuries in India and Europe.
