Mukhwas is an Indian post-meal dessert that helps with digestion and freshens the breath. There are a plethora of recipes available, but they all contain seeds and something sweet. The name “mukhwas” literally means “mouth smell,” since the mixture’s objective is to leave you with fresh breath after a tasty and spicy Indian dinner.
Aniseed, dhania dal (coriander seed core), and sesame seeds, as well as chuara supari (sugar-coated dried dates) and rose and peppermint essences, are used in this recipe. These ingredients are available in Indian supermarkets and internet stores. You can make your own mix once you’ve worked out the ingredients you favour.
