Manisha’s Kitchen is the first and only restaurant serving Aliv or Aleev laddoos in Dubai and not only in the whole of UAE, but in Middle east region too.

Aliv ladoos are made from Aliv Seeds (Graden Cress Seeds). Aliv seeds are a rich source of iron, folic acid, Vitamin E and Vitamin A. They have immunity-boosting properties. For people recovering from coronavirus, these seeds can be beneficial. The seeds can also be helpful in improving your fertility [1].

Raw cress is 89% water, 6% carbohydrates (including 1% dietary fiber), 3% protein and less than 1% fat (table). In a 100 gram amount, raw cress supplies 32 calories and numerous nutrients in significant content, including vitamin K (516% of the Daily Value, DV), vitamin C (83% DV) and vitamin A (43% DV). Among dietary minerals, manganese levels are high (26% DV) while several others, including potassium and magnesium, are in moderate content.

Garden cress, known as chandrashoor, and the seeds, known as aaliv in Marathi, or halloon[8] in India, are commonly used in the system of Ayurveda. It is also known as asario in India and the Middle East where it is prized as a medicinal herb, called habbat al hamra (literally red seeds) in Arabic. In the Arabian Peninsula, the seeds are traditionally mixed with custard to make a hot drink.
