Tandoori Masala

Tandoori Masala doesn't need any introduction. Tandoori dishes are famous all over the world . Almost all the restaurants in India serving lunch or dinner will have at least one tandoori dish . Other than Chicken tandoori and Paneer tikkas this masala can also be used in other vegetables but in small quantities to
give them a special touch.

Usually edible red colour powder is used while making this masala . But I try to avoid food colours and preservatives in my preparation as fas as possible. So my recipe is without the red colour. You can add it separately if you want. But the dish will taste the same with or without the colour.

Ingredients :

1 tbsp......................cloves
1 tbsp.....................cinnamon
1tbsp......................cardamom
2 tbsp.......................pepper
2 tbsp......................shaha jeera
4 tbsp........................coriander seeds
1 whole.....................Nutmeg (jaiphal)






Method :

Heat a kadhai and dry roast all the ingredients separately till they give out nice aroma.
When cold grind them in a mixer.
Store in air tight bottle.
