   Dear Rekha, This much quantity of star anise and cinnamon is needed for flavour and to get its benefits as well. This recipe has been tried. We haven''t tried using powder. However you can try and share your feedback.

   This much star anise and cinnamon is needed to reap its benefits. When boiled in water, the spices are not so strong as otherwise when used in dry form in subzis and pulaos. Do try the recipe and share your feedback.
