A touch of Goda Masala

My Vegetable Makhani – (beans, carrots and cauliflower simmered in cashew milk ,tomatoes and a blend of spices) was rather bland. And I was going to be serving it to 40 people at a formal dinner. I tried adding extra coriander, coconut and cumin, but to no avail, something was still missing.

So, I added a touch of Goda Masala and lo-behold the dish magically transformed into a tasty dish with oodles of flavor. I finally ran out of my little stock of Goda Masala, so I made my own following Sujatha’s recipe..

I plan on using this Goda Masala in the chicken dish and the rice dish that I will be making for the dinner at the Creperie on the 12th of September.
