Fasting Spice Mix
Fasting Spice Mix is the spice blend to keep in your kitchen pantry. It can be used either when you are fasting or otherwise also.
With fasting and gluten free eating, we are trying to find a good balance of spices that we can use while fasting. Ginger, Green chillies and Cilantro / Coriander leaves are cleansing in nature. They cleanse and detox our systems and boost immunity.
While on the other hand, lot of dry spices are prohibited to be used in fasting recipes. I always use Roasted Cumin powder, black pepper powder and cloves for seasoning my fasting food. With repetitive use, I found a good balance of three together.
Sharing today a simple fasting (vrat) spice mix, that can be made in advance and kept handy to be sprinkled when needed. This again helps in cleansing our system and boosting the immunity.
You may sprinkle this spice mix on your dry fruits, aloo ki chaat, yogurt, lassi, fruits etc.
This is how I made it.
