Masala Powder for Chips / ಚಿಪ್ಸ್ ಮಸಾಲಾ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

These days, I am getting used to measuring the ingredients while cooking. Never I had a habit of measuring the ingredients earlier. Now, my blog makes me remember to measure the things when I am in the kitchen :)
Here is the recipe of masala powder for preparing the Chips. These are my own measurements, you can make little variations in these ingredients according to your taste :)

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Difficulty level: Easy

  • Chana dal - 2 tbsp
  • Cloves - 5
  • Cinnamon - 2 small pieces
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp carom seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • Big pinch of asafoetida
  • Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
  • Chilli powder - adjust according to spiciness needed
  • Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp or to taste
  • Salt - See Tips

  • Dry roast all the above ingredients except chilli powder and amchur powder. Combine them and make a fine powder.
  • To this, add chilli powder and amchur powder according to taste. 
  • Transfer it to an airtight container and use when required.
  • Better you prepare it fresh while preparing the chips.

  • I have not added salt to this masala powder. Either you can add salt while preparing masala powder or salt can be added directly while preparing chips.
  • Left out masala powder can be used for preparing Palya or any other curries.
