21 OMA WATER

Omam in Tamil. Carom Seeds in English. Ajwain in Hindi.


Using oma water is a simple home remedy in many households to relieve us from stomach pain. Normally this water was given to us on a regular basis no matter if we had a pain or not. Though it has a strong smell and flavor it is very good to have and really soothes us very soon.

To know more about these seeds click here.


Omam is a seed which looks very similar like cumin seeds, but little short and flat. Has a very good aroma. These seeds are good to have to when we have stomach pain, or suffer from acidity and heart burn. Relieves and soothes from the pain.

Ajwain seeds - 2 tsp
Water - 1 cup

Dry roast the seeds in a pan or microwave until you get a very nice aroma. I used the microwave and set it just for 45 seconds.

Take the seeds and water in a sauce pan and boil it well till it reduces to half the amount. Leave it alone and strain the water using a tea filter.


Take a tbsp of water whenever needed when you are having severe stomach pain, acidity/ heartburn due to indigestion.
Can be given to kids and adults. Back home they also used to give to babies above 9 months.
