Making your own Indian Spice Blends AKA Masalas

Oh, cooking these days has become so easy with hundreds of blogs and YouTube channels that guide you step by step. Gone are the days when the ladies had to roast and grind the spices to make delicious meals like Biryani and Pav Bhaji. These spice mixes are now readily available and can be bought off the shelf at most Indian stores. However, with different brands offering the same product, you can’t be assured of the authenticity and will have to go by the trial and error method to find out what you like the best. Moreover, the Maharashtrian Goda Masala or the Andhra Gun Powder can be hard to find, especially in places with a smaller customer reach. That being said, making your masalas at home gives you the freedom to customize and tweak spice proportions to best suit your family’s needs, thereby making it a worthy option.

A few weeks ago, I came across this set of masala recipes, doing the rounds on WhatsApp, and I thought it would be great to share it with you guys! It has been beautifully captured and will surely help some of the cooks out there.

So get going and spice up your life! Let us know in the comments below, how these spice blends have worked for you….
