Homemade Masala

sent on 22-Nov-2018

Indian cuisine is incomplete without a hint of masala. Apart from the regular spices like chili powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds- coriander seeds powder, a spice mix is mostly used to enhance the flavor of a curry/subzi. Though it is convenient to buy readymade spice mix, many people still believe in making masalas at home.

The quality is far more superior when you make masalas at home. They can be prepared in bulk and stored in an air-tight container. Use them as and when required. Traditionally, masalas were ground on a stone grinder or a huge mortar pestle but, now we have got food processor/ mixer grinder to do that in a jiffy. The flavor imparted by freshly ground home-made masala is unbeatable.

While you are roasting each spices before grinding, the aroma will linger in your house for a longtime. Indian cuisine is so diverse that you cannot substitute masalas, each of them has distinct flavor. Authentically, spices were dried in sunlight and then ground but, due to time-constraints or insufficient sunlight they are now preferred to be dry-roasted in a pan.

Here is a collection of quintessential Indian spice mixes, which you can easily make at home with readily available ingredients. These masalas will help you make lip-smacking food at home.
