How to make Masala Blend:

Masala blend is not difficult to make at all. Since nearly all of the Indian curries contain turmeric and coriander in its gravy so it is better if you have it mixed in a air tight container so you do not have to make it every time when you make something. This Masala blend consists of coriander, turmeric, cumin and cayenne. If you want to have spicier and hotter dish then simply add more cayenne pepper in the Masala to make it hotter.


Ingredients:

  1. Coriander Seeds: 3 Tbsp.
  2. Turmeric Powder: 1 Tbsp
  3. Cumin Seeds: 1 Tbsp.
  4. Cayenne Pepper: ½ Tsp.

Method:

  1. Take a blender.
  2. In the blender add cumin seeds and coriander seeds.
  3. Grind them to a fine powder.
  4. Add Turmeric poweder.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Add Cayenne pepper in this mixture.
  7. Mix well.
  8. Transfer to an airtight jar.
  9. Store in cool and dry place.

Tip:

  1. The quantities of the ingredients are only symbolic and are enough for one dish. If you wish to store it for future use then you can increase the quantities accordingly.
