Breath-Friendly Herbal Chew

 

1/4 cup (27 g) anise seed
1/4 cup (12 g) cardamom pods

A dried seed mixture known as mukhwas, typically made by mixing anise seed and cardamom, is traditionally served after an indian meal. It has a delicate licorice flavor (thanks to the anise) and is thought to aid digestion and lessen bad breath. Mix the spices together and store in a cool dry place. Tp use, place a tablespoon (15 ml) of the mixture in your mouth and allow your saliva to soften the seeds slightly. Chew until the mixture begins to lose its flavor. Do not swallow the seed hulls.
