Recipe Notes
  1. Kapok buds and poppy seeds are very essential while making bisi bele bath powder.So dont omit it.
  2. If you want you can omit dry coconut .This further increases shelf life . You can grind and add at the time of making bisibelebath .
  3. Usually bisi bele bath is spicy. But if you cant take much spice reduce the chillies .
  4. I always make these powders in small batches ie once made gets over in 3-5 use.
  5. This masala powder can also be used while making sambar . It gives a different taste .
