Indian Spinach or Pasalai keerai is a particularly popular greens variety as it has lot of nutritional value. It is consumed as a regular leafy vegetable by cooking with other spices and dhal.  It is low in calories but high in nutrients. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals. However, for a specific condition such as stones in the kidney, it is better when consumed raw.

This recipe shows how to consume Indian spinach to cure stones in the kidney.

DIY – Indian spinach (Pasalai keerai) to cure kidney stones

  • 5 leaves Indian Spinach (Known as Pasalaikeerai in Tamil.)
  • 1 teaspoon Palm sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  1. Wash and clean spinach leaves.
  2. Tear or chop them into small pieces to make crushing easy.
  3. Place the leaves in a mortar and crush them well into a pestle.
  4. Keep crushing well since we will be squeezing it to get an extract. You can add water to crush the leaves better.
  5. Here are the crushed leaves.
  6. Now squeeze the leaves with clean hands to extract the juice.
  7. You will need about 1 to 2 teaspoons of the extract.
  8. Now add 1/4 teaspoon of palm sugar.
  9. Add hot water to the extract. The extract of Indian spinach is quite gel like and water is required to dilute and make it drinkable.
  10. Mix well till the sugar and extract dissolve completely.
  11. Drink.

This drink isn’t exactly delicious. I would suggest drinking this once a day for 4 days a week till you find a cure.
