Spice mix (Chooran Churan) for balancing Kapha Recipe

Spice mix formulated to balance aggravated Kapha. Balancing Kapha may be useful to lose weight.
1. Balancing Taste (Bitter Pungent and Astringent) spices should exceed Aggravating Taste (Sweet Sour and Salty) spices
2. Salty should be the smallest amount.
3. Salt and Sugar both draw moisture from atmosphere. The mixture will turn clumpy or soggy. Therefore, the mixture should be stored in a air-tight jar.

4. Be careful when selecting pungent spices. Hot cayenne may lead to harsh spice powder, compared to black peppers
 

There are two recipes included: Simple recipe consisting of 7 ingredients, and an Expanded recipe with 14 recipes. You can make your own formula.
