Mangalore Bafat Powder

This is my Mom’s recipe for the Mangalore Bafat/ Baffat/ Baffad powder. She uses it to make her famous Pork Bafat which is very well appreciated, loved, and a BIG HIT at many parties!!

This powder is so versatile, will help you dish up many a chicken, mutton, fish or vegetable curry in a jiffy without breaking a sweat. I use it regularly to perk up my veggies ( yam, swedemarrow/cucumber, pumpkin, gherkins or drumsticks)

Ready made Bafat powder is available in most Mangalore stores and is good, but nothing to beat the freshness and fragrance of homemade Bafat powder.

If preparing a bigger quantity keep in an airtight container in the fridge. Will keep fresh for upto 12 months.
