Goda Kala Masala (Maharashtrian Masala)

Goda masala is a Maharashtrian masala that is very different from the regular garam masala. It is used to flavor some classic marathi dishes like Bharli wangi or stuffed eggplant.


Kala Masala has dried coconut in it which reduces its shelf life. Stored in an airtight container it lasts for a fortnight.

You will need
1/4 cup coriander seeds
1 tbsp. cumin seeds
1 clove
1/2 inch piece cinnamon
1/4 cup dried coconut flakes
1 tbsp. olive oil

Heat a tbsp. of oil and roast the coriander and cumin seeds. When they get crispy transfer them to a bowl of a dry grinder. Add the clove and cinnamon to the pan. Roast for a few minutes until crisp and transfer to the bowl. Now roast the coconut flakes and when they start to turn brown turn off heat and transfer them to the bowl. Dry grind to a powder and store.
