I needed this mix for a butter chicken recipe. Rather than another trip to the store, I decided to make my own!

There are so many different aromas and savours here each unique on its own yet they come together so nicely for this earthy blend - it seems like they have always belonged together. Much better than any store bought blend. Thank you TheBritishBaker for this recipe. Read More

I added 1 tbsp turmeric and Substituted 1/4 tsp ground mustard instead of fenugreek. Lovely blend of spices-I should have made a bigger batch. Read More

I have tried numerous recipes for "garam masala" spice mix but hadn't heard of Tandoori Masala. In the past I have toasted the seeds and ground my own. Today I got lazy and had all the pre-ground spices (except I did have to grind the fenugreek). I'm very happy with the taste of this blend as is my husband who enjoyed it in a "Butter Chicken" dish just as TheBritishBaker (who shared this recipe) did. I didn't change a thing. Read More
