Badishoap powder - Powdered Fennel mouth freshener

This is my MIL's recipe. She always sends us a bottle full of this powder, so we are well stocked with it year round. As a result, I have never needed/attempted to make it myself. It acts as a wonderful mouth freshener/digestive aid, especially after a heavy meal.

The proportions below are approximate, to be modified per taste desired.

200 gms badishoap/fennel seeds/saunf

Ova/ajwain seeds - handful - this has a mildly hot flavor so adjust accordingly to taste

Jeshthamadh (sweet root) pwd - this adds sweetness

Shendelon (Rock salt) pwd

Padelon (Black salt) pwd

Most of the above ingredients are available in large Indian stores.

Lightly roast the badishoap. Then dry grind along with other items to a fine pwd.

This Badishoap/Fennel seeds mouth freshener goes to the Think Spice - Fennel Seeds event at Kopiaste.

This event was started by Sunita of Sunita's world.
