Pirandai is a creeper that has wonderful medicinal uses and health benefits.
It is called "Adamant Creeper | Devil's Back Bone | Veldt Grape" in English and it's botanical name is Cissus quadrangularris and it is called Hadjot in Hindi.
This creeper grows easily everywhere and can be very easily grown in pots at home. Pirandi has multiple health benefits: It treats indigestion, fractures and sprains, is a best worming medicine, treats piles, menstrual problems,a great source of fibre and is also rich in calcium. It is great for pregnant mothers also.

Many hesitate to use pirandai because of it's itchy nature, but if we properly handle pirandai, we can prevent itchiness in our hands. First always try to pick tender pirandai, young pirandai can be easily broken with hands and as the pirandai ages it thickens. To prevent itching in the hands, smear your hands with a bit of sesame oil before handling pirandai. After collecting pirandai, wash it well and break it at the nodes and remove the nodes too. If the pirandai is tender, you can break it with hands easily into two and pull the fibers apart, like we do for peeling drumsticks. If the pirandai is a bit aged, after breaking at the nodes, take a peeler and remove the sharp edges like we do for ridged gourd, now the prandai is ready to be used.
Pirandai chutney is a personal favourite in my house and if you have young children at home who don't eat well, try giving this pirandai chutney weekly twice.

People who complain of indigestion often can include pirandai at least weekly twice in their diet.

Our elders have used alot of medicinal plants in their diets as they believed "prevention is better then cure"
Let's also follow them!

Direction for use: Mix 1/2 spoon (2-3 g) of Pirandai powder in a glass of warm water and drink after food. It is an inherent quality of pirandai to cause a mild itching sensation in the throat hence if you have not used it before, it is better to cook it with soup or rasam and take it or try Pirandai Thovayal, Chutney, Pirandai Dosai are the other traditional ways in which this Pirandai Powder is used as a home remedy.
Packing: 100 g (Net weight)
