As its name implies, this is great for flavouring vegetarian dishes, including dishes made out of paneer, or cottage cheese, or fresh cheese…I like to think of it as my “vegetarian garam masala”. You can call yours what you want but trust me, it’ll taste superb.
Starting clockwise we have: 2 teaspoons coriander seeds, 2 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds, 2 bay leaves and 3 dried red chillies.
First of all add the coriander seeds to your bowl
Then add the cumin seeds
And finally, add your dried red chillies
Now store all your whole spices in an airtight glass jar
And as I mentioned before, keep your spices away from direct heat, light and moisture
