    Daydream's Note:

    This is a spice blend originating from Maharashtra in India. Goda' means 'sweet' and in this recipe the sweetness comes from the coconut in the mixture. It is not readily available in shops, so I make a fairly small quantity and store it in an airtight container for up to 4 months. This is an adaptation of Monisha Bharadwaj's recipe, and is an ingredient in Puneri Dal (Yellow Lentils Pune-style) which I am posting separately.

      This is an awesome masala. I used this in your Puneri dal recipe. I didn't have sesame seeds and poppy seeds on hand, so I had to do without those. This made my dal a true delight! Thank you so much for sharing this OUTSTANDING blend of spices!

      I followed this recipe exactly....and wow...did it smell good!!!! At step 6 I put the mixtures in my mortar (I don't have a coffe grinder)and pounded the heck out of it with my pestle..the oils that came out of the sesame seeds made this masala smell delicious!!! I made this masala for Puneri Dal Puneri Dal (Yellow Lentils Pune-Style) - and it is the first lentil recipe that I (and my family) have actually enjoyed....I think that, even though it's not an authentic thing to do, I will rub this masala on Naan before baking for extra-special bread, as well as using it for the Puneri Dal.Thanks Daydream!!!!
