Authentic Punjabi Spice Mix
« on: August 13, 2017, 07:17 AM »
Hi All,

After seeing SL's Punjabi Masala, I turned the house inside out to find a Punjabi spice mix recipe that a friend (who is Punjabi) gave to me about 12 years ago. I had to turn my office upside down, but eventually found it...stuck in the back of Pat's NCB.

Anyway, I checked the recipe and there were a few ingredients that I don't keep on hand, so I whizzed out to a very good Indian grocer I've found here (NZ, Hawkes Bay). The urgency? Wanted to make SL's dish as had a rare night without the wife and kids about.

Here's the recipe:

Into the spice grinder...

2 tbsp Onion Flakes
2 tbsp Dried Garlic Flakes
2 whole Star Anise
1 tsp Cloves
1 tbsp Coriander seeds
1 tbsp Cumin seeds
1 tbsp Caraway seeds
3 Indian Bay Leaf
1 tsp Black Peppercorn
1 tsp Poppy seed
1 tsp Kasoori Methi
1 tsp Black cardamom seeds
1 tsp Green cardamom seeds

Grind em' up!

Place into jar, then add powdered:

1/2 tbsp Tumeric
1 tbsp Ginger
1 tsp Mango
4 tbsp Kashmiri chilli
1 tbsp red food colour (optional)

Shake it up so well mixed.

I used this to make SL's dish. It turned out great. Photo to follow.

My orthography, like your spice mix, is complex :)

Ha! Indeed.

Here's my effort. It's a lamb tikka version...

Looking good though, that. Lamb is a great tikka I think, perhaps because it's sturdier?
