Notes

  1. Don't store this paste for long. Always use fresh paste for your recipes.
  2. You can use this paste for a lot of different curries that require smooth texture, especially when you want to serve such dishes at the restaurants.
  3. If you want to use the spice mix for later use, make sure you don't use Onions while grinding. Also, don't forget to add a pinch of salt to it. It should help in improving the shelf life of this spice mix.
  4. If the paste is too spicy to your taste, use Ghee or Clarified Butter in your dish. It will tone down the pungency of the dish.
  5. You can also use this Khada Masala paste as a marination for Chicken or Paneer.
