In this photo, I'm fairly sure the long striped spice (or herb?) is either fennel or fenugreek. I get those two mixed up. (Yep - Fennel seed, called Saunf.)
The white teardrop seed is sesame seed.
The red balls are crunchy and sweet or possibly minty or anise candy?
I'm not sure about the long white shreds - I don't remember tasting coconut but these kinda look like it.
I'm also not sure what the smooth orangy round things are - almost want to say lentils or split peas/"dal" but these are smaller than lentils. Maybe it's the other fennel/fenugreek that the first was not? (Later - yep, the orangy smooth ones are fenugreek.
I like that anise seed mix too. Your question encouraged me to get an answer. It is called Mukhwas. Not surprisingly there are many recipes for the mixture. I'm going to spend some time looking at recipes to see which one I may try ... or maybe I'll simply buy a pre-made mix at the local Indian grocery.
