“Tumhare ghar ke khane ki baat hi kuch aur hai!”, “isme daalte kya ho?” have been told/asked/complimented by friends and family a number of times. The secret is this flavourful blend of home-roasted and ground spices which I am now ready to share with foodies just like me.Punjabi Tari Masala by Masala Monk
There was a lot of hard work done to achieve the above compliment, in selecting the spices, observing what flavour one spice gives, what benefit the other spice has. Numerous trips to Khari Baoli (Mecca of spices in Delhi) were made, all the masalas were separately dry roasted at home, examined for their aroma, ground and then mixed to make this Punjabi Tari Masala. This exercise was repeated quite a few times by myself my father for 6-7 months, to achieve the perfect colour, aroma, and flavour.
“Tari” is the gravy part of the Indian curries (especially North Indian). With this masala, you don’t need any other spice, not even salt. Just “bhunofy” your ginger-garlic-onions-tomatoes-green chillies with this masala and you have whipped up the most flavourful tari you will ever have. Use it generously (1-2 tbsp) in aalu matar, gatte ki sabzi, ghar wali chicken or mutton curry and even ghia, tori or in any other boring vegetables and turn them into flavour-bombs 😛
Note: Salt and red chillies have been kept at a moderate level, add more according to your taste.
