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.
