You can make the spice blend yourself or get a head start on the spice mix by purchasing the Ayurvedic Kapha Churna blend at Mapi.com. If you purchase the spice blend you will have to add the organic dandelion leaf and organic lavender buds.
Don't be alarmed by the number of spices in this blend. The combination is so tasty and so good for your body (detox, warming, circulation, anti-inflammatory and more) you'll find yourself reaching for it to spice up many of your other dishes--making the initial investment in the spices worth the extra expense.
