This is a multipuropse spice. I used to buy it from ethnic east indian stores but I have started making it from the dry spices. The aroma and taste are exceptional.

I halved this recipe, although now I wish I had a made a full batch! Instead of a blender, I used a coffee grinder, part of my decision to halve it. I love the detail in the instructions saying to "crack and peel the green shell off" the cardamom seeds; I would have done it anyway, but there was a time when I was learning to cook that I might not have lol!. The resulting spice mix is quite nice! Thanks, Avtar Singh! Made for ZWT4.

Thank you for this recipe. The other day I was wanting to make chicken tikkie masala and didn't have (my super market)all the spices required. I will now seek all these and make my own Masala for when need it. Thank you once again
