“Masala is a mixture of spices and herbs used to give Indian food its distinctive flavour. You can purchase many ingredients for the masala such as dried herbs and spices but where you can, buy fresh ingredients and grind them yourself - the difference is very noticeable and the deep flavour and complex aroma is well worth it. Prepare your masala and separate into tablespoon portions and freeze individually for later use for quick and tasty Indian food. Delicious!”

  2. Divide the mixture in approx tablespoon size portions and freeze for later use.
  3. It's as simple as that and use in any recipe that calls for masala. You will never go back to buying curry powder!
