  • 2 Tablespoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Ground Mace
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Ginger Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Cloves
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Fenugreek
  • 2 Pcs Black Cardamom

  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoon Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Indian Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Turmeric Powder

INSTRUCTIONS : Tandoori Masala

  • Gather all the Ingredients
  • Dry Roast the Cumin, coriander seeds, cloves, and cinnamon sticks, Cardamom, Black pepper and ground mace in a pan over low heat until they begin to release their aroma.
  • Remove the spices from the heat and allow them to cool
  • Grind the Roasted spices along with the ginger powder, garlic powder, chili powder, nutmeg powder, turmeric, salt.
  • Grind to form a smooth powder.
  • Store the Powder in airtight container for 8 to 10 weeks.

Tips :

  • Roasting and grinding whole spices yourself provides far better flavor than using already ground packaged spices.
  • It is essential to utilize Indian Red Chilli Powder, not Southwestern American Red Chilli Powder. The two flavors have a totally different flavor profile; though American Red Chilli Powder is really a mix of flavors, Indian Red Chilli Powder is ground-up Chilli, like cayenne.
  • Before Grinding make sure that the grinder is clean and dry.
