Magai Mukhwas


 
 
There are many recipes of "Mouth Fresheners" which are also known as Mukhwas in Gujarati. Today's recipe is called Magai Mukhwas because it contains Magai Paan. I have also given a picture of Magai Paan below. It is easily available in a container.

2. Roasted Dhana daal is readily available at most of the Indian stores.
3. If you can't find Magaj Tare/Magaj Bee, substitute with peeled pumpkin seeds.
4. Some people also add desiccated coconut in this recipe. If using, roast it separately before adding. Also note that the coconut may turn rancid soon.
