This goes well with any type of rice, Naan, Rotis, or even Tortillas for burritos. Preparation for Masala Powder: Make masala powder with all 12 spices, which goes with any non-veg curry, or Biryani or Pulao and even with some vegetarian dishes. 12 Ingredients for Masala: 2 spoons of Cloves with 1 spoon each of Cardamom, Mace, Cinnamon, Anise seeds, Poppy seeds, Cumin, Coriander, Vamu, Marata Moggalu, Somph, and 2 bay leaves. Put all of them together and grind in a coffee grinder, and use for all the non-veg dishes. Use anywhere from 3 to 4 spoons to make a dish for 8-10 people. 2 spoons is enough to serve only for 4-6 people dish.

Recipe Tips

Use Roma tomato or remove tomato seeds from inside before grinding it, so it will prevent kidney stones. Needs neither seasoning nor Cilantra.
