How to prepare:

  1. Toast the white sesame until golden, and let it cool in a cold container.
  2. Put the baru flour, herbs, salt, and spices in a blender and blend until the herbs are powdered.
  3. Shake the blender if necessary to facilitate this process.
  4. Add the sesame and beat until it turns to powder as well.
  5. If necessary, pass through a sieve to remove larger pieces.
  6. TIP: Store in a closed glass container. Valid for six months.
  7. We always use ginger and turmeric because of their digestive and anti-inflammatory features and play with other ingredients at home.
