Malwani Chicken Masala Powder

Malwani chicken is a very popular dish which is much in demand in hotels and restaurants . When I posted  malwani-chicken-sagoti some time back I got many requests to post the recipe of this malwani chicken masala as well . But since I always make the masalas in small batches I took so long to post this masala recipe. Making masalas in less quantity helps them to retain their flavor and aroma.  I normally do not store any home made masalas for more than a month. But if you want to make them in large batches then refrigeration can help you to keep the masalas in good condition for a longer time.

This masala is very handy and gives an amazing taste to chicken. Malwani chicken is usually had with bhakris  or plain hot rice . It also tastes yummy with wade . I will soon post the recipe of Kombdi wade in which this chicken masala is used .  Used in malwani ( Malwan is an area on the Konkan coast ) cuisine , you can also add this masala to make various spicy vegetable gravies. 






Ingredients :

2 tbsp............................Coriander seeds
1tsp..............................cumin seeds
1 tsp...........................shahajeera
1tsp............................fennel seeds (badishep)
1tsp...........................pepper
1tsp...............................cloves
5 ..................................cardamoms
2............................masala cardamoms
1 ..............................dagadphool ( stone flower)
1 tsbp.......................javitri
2 inches...................dalchini




Method :

Dry roast all the ingredients till they give out nice aroma.

When they cool down grind to powder and keep in airtight bottle.

Always try making the masalas in small batches.

Otherwise they lose there flavour and aroma.

Other than in malwani chicken this masala can also be used in various vegetables.
