Coorgi masala is simple and yet delicious.
The use of the spices in our backyard is quite common in Indian Cuisine so we have yummy masala. Each household has a different spice powder, forget household each individual member will make the masala a bit different. The subtle differences come from the differences in the freshness of the ingredients to the treatment of the ingredients.
Do try this delicious masala that Mrs Prasad my host at Coorg shared with me.
I reduced the quantities as rains were fast approaching and by the time I come back to one masala it needs t be binned. I reduced it to 1/4 the quantity.
