1/2tsp – White pepper
1/4 cup – Curd
Mix all the ingredients together.
The mix, according to Batra, helps children to “focus better, sharpen their memory and feel less stressed during exam season”.
Here’s why these foods matter
Walnuts are considered to be good to boost brain health. With a high concentration of DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid, the nut has shown to protect brain health in newborns, improve cognition power in adults, and prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Mishri or rock sugar
The cystallised sugar lumps are known as an instant energy booster, which is essential for clear thinking and focus.
Almonds are considered brain food as the high levels of vitamin E in them is known to boost focus and preserve memory power.
Considering the ingredients are themselves effective in boosting memory, a mixture of these becomes all the more potent, if Batra’s post is anything to go by.
