Methia no Masala is a tongue-tickling Gujarati spice powder with the dominant flavour of mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. The process of powdering each spice separately and mixing is very important to get the right mouth-feel.
The powdered spice mix, which stays good for almost one year if stored in an airtight container, is stocked in almost every Gujarati household.
It is used as an accompaniment for parathas , theplas and rotis . Ghee is applied on Khakhra , and this masala is sprinkled over it, to make a scrumptious and tasty snack within minutes!
The warmth of the Methia No Masala on your taste buds is a joy to experience, especially during the winter and monsoon days.
