Thanks, all of you, for your help.  I know I go overboard on "exactness" ::).   But I want to experience the flavor exactly as the recipe intended.  I'm always amazed at how the recipes use the same spices in similar proportions, and yet they yield entirely different flavors.

I made the spice mix last night using the 5 g = 1 tsp conversion.  All I know is that it smells great, and tastes even better!  It tastes the way I always thought Rajah curry powder should taste.

Has anyone compared this to a store bought tandoori masala like Rajah or TRS?
It looks really interesting but I'm a bit hesitant to try it out because I'd have to buy a lot of the ingredients. There is a few differences to the recipe in The New Curry Bible book that I own, where the red and yellow food colouring are replaced with:

20g beetroot powder (never heard of it tbh)
10g anatto seed powder (never heard of this either)
5g red food colouring (optional)

I'm guessing these ingredients are just a healthier version of food colouring and doesn't affect the taste much.

Hi CurryPot,

This is a tandoori masala (a dry mixture of spices) CurryPot (much the same as a curry powder or "spice mix").  If you are thereafter looking to use it to make, say, a tikka or tandoori marinade, you need to look here:  http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=1555.msg13736#msg13736

If you're looking to use it to make, say, a chicken tikka masala, you need to look here:  http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=1562.0

I also often add a little (about 0.5 tsp) to curries (e.g. a madras).

I also use it to make keema meat for kebabs or for making keema naans.

I hope this helps!  8)
Regards,

CA :)
