What Spice Blend Am I Thinking Of?

11 posts in this topic

Hi, A few months ago I heard of a spice blend that sounded divine and I recall telling myself that the next

time I stop at the Indian Mkt Id buy some. Well, I forgot to not only stop, but I forgot the name of it too.

Ive been trying to Google for it but all I come up with is Ras Al Hanout but thats Middle Eastern..

It is NOT Garam Masala

Is there an Indian spice blend besides Garam Masala that is ultra delicious and popular?


Wawa Sizzli FTW!

Is it Panch Phoron (various spellings), the Bengali standard five-spice ?


QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

But chat masala is mainly an all purpose spice?

If it's not chat masala, il could be jaljeera masala? If it's not for sprinkling, it could be Kitchen King masala? Goda masala. I'm trying to give names of uncommon masalas but it could just be any blend.

Could we have the colour and one or two spices that you could identify in the mix?

Vadouvan, perhaps? It seems like it became popular almost overnight...


True rye and true bourbon wake delight like any great wine...dignify man as possessing a palate that responds to them and ennoble his soul as shimmering with the response.
