Saunf powder is a powdered form of fennel seeds, which are commonly used as a spice and an after-meal digestive aid in many cuisines. Fennel seeds are known for their aromatic flavor, which is similar to that of licorice. Saunf powder can be made at home by grinding fennel seeds into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle or a grinder. It is also readily available in stores and is often used in Indian cooking, particularly in various spice blends, curries, pickles, and masalas.
Apart from its culinary uses, saunf powder is believed to have several health benefits. It is known to aid digestion, reduce bloating, and relieve constipation. It is also used as a mouth freshener and is believed to have antibacterial properties that promote oral health. Additionally, it is considered to have diuretic properties, which may help in flushing out toxins from the body.
