Malvani Masala is a popular Maharashtrian spice mix, which is used to flavour curries and subzis. This dry spice powder has a very appetizing flavour and irresistible aroma, which results from the interplay of over a dozen spices!
After roasting, let the spices cool before you powder them, only then you will get the proper smooth consistency – if you try to grind when the spices are hot, the powder will clump up.
Make a batch of this masala and store it in a dry, airtight container away from direct sunlight. Keep the jar well-lidded so that the aroma is locked in.
You can also stock up on other dry homemade masalas like Biryani Masala , Tandoori Masala and Sambar Masala .
