Bisi Bele Bath Powder

Today my condiment for Buffet On Table is a spice powder from Indian cuisine. This recipe I wanted to post from long time but some how every time I missed it. There are a bit variations in this recipe means person to person  the ingredients will change a little bit but the whole recipe will be same. Like I make it a but spicy and I use Marati moggu instead of cloves.

                                                                       Marati moggu looks like clove but it is not clove, it taste and smells also different from clove. Marati moggu is specially used in making of Bisi Bele Bath in Karnataka.
