Today is Indian Independence day . An Important day for all our fellow Indians to renew our vow for working towards the betterment of our Motherland.
On this historic day ,I have another reason to celebrate . Its a small milestone as this is my 50th post on my blog. I owe it to all my family and friends who have encouraged and supported me to reach here. I would like to thank each one of you and dedicate this post to all of you for your immense support.
As you all know I try and experiment different cuisines(Vegetarian). I was introduced to this Ghee Roast Masala by a Manglorean friend. I made Ghee roast masala at home and started experimenting.
A very simple,Easy and yummy dish to prepare.
You can substitute with Paneer , Potato or mushroom.

1. Clean & remove the stalks of the chillies.
2. Either sun dry them for a few days or Incase you cannot sun dry just roast it lightly but ensure it does not burn.
3.Roast the rest of the ingredients (except garlic ) separately at a low flame for a few minutes only, until they are a shade darker and starts to get aromatic (the aroma is hard to miss). Remove from heat and let cool.
4. Combine all ingredients and grind into a fine powder. Sift using a metal sieve.
This can be stored in a airtight container upto one year in the refrigerator.
Sun dry the garlic flakes for a few days and then mix to the above mixture.
Do try small quantities first.
