What's in the bunjut?

A reader asked here what goes into the 'bunjut'. She is in the States and hope to make her own 'bunjut';). I suspected she googled sup bunjut and found my entry;). I was surprised to see that she has a nice and serious (not like mine) foodblog.

Well, as I myself know only roughly what's in there, I opened up one, took pics before and after, and lovingly tied it up back.

So Zarina, here goes...I hope you will read this...

I could see all spices had been coursely grinded

And now all the things inside

Easy, peasy... I'm sure you can find all that.

I know some of the spices come ready to cook in the form of powder but since I cook for kids, I don't want to have the taste to be too strong. And some people also love having some spices outside the 'bunjut'. I also try to avoid this as I love the taste and aroma of them but I would go "Yikes...!" whenever I bite or accidently chew them, especially star anise.

Anyway, good luck Zarina!
