Chhole Masala Powder

I love to experiment with my own Masala blends these days. I have been making this Chhole Masala powder, for a while now. It not only goes well with chhole but also substitutes for Garam Masala.

Chhole Masala Powder
1/2 cup coriander seeds
1 tbsp. shahjire
2 tbsp. cumin seeds
2 green cardamoms
2" cinnamon piece
7 cloves
15 black peppercorns
1 bay leaf

You will also need,
1 tbsp. paprika or Kashmiri chile  powder
1/2 tsp dry ginger powder
1/2 tbsp. amchoor powder
1 tbsp. chaat masala

1. Dry roast the spices from coriander seeds till bay leaf, one after the other on a medium flame. Let it cool to room temperature.
2. Grind to powder.
3. Add the remaining powders.
4. Grind again till it reaches fine powder consistency.
5. Pour in an airtight bottle.
6. Use as needed

Note -
1. Do not let the spices to burn, while roasting
