Masala Supari

In India, there is a practice of serving “Mukhwaas” or Mouth-Freshener after Food. A lot of products are available in the market and the most common mouth freshener is a combination of Saunf-Dhanadaal(Fennel seeds-Split Coriander seeds). The Masala supari which we are preparing here is a combination of traditional Ayurvedic ingredients, which are known to be good for digestion and help in avoiding gas problems. This Supari is typically given to ladies who have just given birth – till upto a few months post child-birth. However, this can be consumed by everyone, even children.
