Bisibelebath powder

This is the masala powder used  in  preparing Bisibelebath.

Bengal gram (channa dhal / kadalai paruppu) - 3 tsp
Black gram (urad dhal) - 3 tsp
Poppy seed - 1 tsp
fenugreek (methi seed) - 5 seeds
dry coconut (kopparai thengai) - 3 tbsp
Dry red chilly - 5
Whole black pepper - 10
cumin - 1/2 tsp
coriander seed - 3 tsp
cloves, caradamon - 2
cinnamon - 2 inch piece

Dry roast the dhals separately (if in large quantity) and keep them aside. Put all the other items together and dry roast till the coconut smells good. Let it cool.
Grind them together to a fine powder. Keep the powder in freezer for further use. We can use this powder for making bisbelebath as well as vangi bath.
