Storage and Health Benefits
Powdered mirch should be stored in airtight jars in a cool place. Over time the spice will lose both its flavour and heat, so do not try and keep it for months but use it in your cooking. It contains vitamin C and antioxidants, which are good for your health. A small amount sprinkled across a doorway can keep ants and other pests away.
