Goda Masala (गोडा मसाला)

Goda Masala (गोडा मसाला) also known as Kala Masala (काळा मसाला) is one of the most requested recipes that my friends were asking me for a while. This is a special masala recipe that my mother gave me and I cannot imagine making any Maharasthrian Bhaji/Aamti without using this masala. All my non-marathi friends also love the taste when I make food using this masala. Finally I prepared this masala myself using my moms recipe that I am sharing with you.

Ingredients

  • 250gm Dhane (धने)
  • 50gm Cumin Seads/Jeera(जीरे)
  • 3-4 Black Cardamom (मसाला वेलची / बडी इलायची)
  • 25gm Black Pepper (काळी मिरी)
  • 25gm Cloves (लवंग)
  • 25gm Cinnamon (दालचिनी)
  • 2/3 florets Javitri (जायपत्री)
  • 3-4 Bay Leaves (तमालपत्र / तेजपत्ता)
  • 25gm Poppy Seeds (खसखस)
  • 50gm Sesame Seeds (तीळ)
  • 2 tsp Asafetida (हिंग)
  • 25gm Red chilli powder (लाल तिखट)
  • 2 tsp Turmeric powder (हळद / हलदी)

Recipe

  • Put 2 tsp cooking oil in a Kadhai and roast Dry Coriander(धने) on a low flame for 3 minutes with continuous stirring to avoid over burning. Keep the roasted coriander aside

Keep the roasted mixture aside

sesame


  • Add Poppy Seeds (खसखस) and Sesame Seeds (तीळ) to the Kadhai and roast on low flame for 1 minute with continuous stirring. Keep the mixture aside.

  • Turn OFF the flame and in the oil that is left in the Kadhai(don’t need more oil), add Asafetida (हिंग), Red chilli powder(लाल तिखट) and Turmeric powder (हळद / हलदी), stir quickly and constantly for less than a minute. Set the mixture aside

Be extra careful with Asafetida, chilli powder and Turmeric powder as you don’t need these ingredients to burn.


  • Crush Cinnamon sticks to make small pieces before putting in a dry grinder. Add all the roasted mixture to a grinder to make a fine powder. Your Goda Masala is ready for use

Depending on your dry grinder, in case your masala becomes very coarse, then sieve it to get a fine powder. Add the masala to your favorite recipes and enjoy !!!

Use Goda masala in any Dry or Gravy vegetable or Daal
