Oh!the aroma it spreads is truly awesome.

I have seen my mom making this masala,so the measurements I make are only by hand.

As I had the idea of sharing I had to make the measurements,so do try and send in your


My mom makes chicken curry with coconut milk.

It’s best to add 1.5-2 tsp of this spice,just after you add the thickened milk .

Well,if you are using fine ground coconut you could add with it.

You should use this spice for spicy chicken or meat curries not kormas.

Now for the recipe


4 tblsp raw rice

10 cardamoms

4-5 sticks cinammon

1 tblsp cummin seeds

1 tblsp saunf

Few curry leaves

1 tsp peppercorns

1 tsp mustard ( to be added finally)


Dry roast all ingredients except mustard till you see the rice turning light brown.Remove

from fire and add the mustard seeds immediately whilst hot.Mix and you will hear the

crackle of the mustard seed.

Powder fine and store .
