Indian and Ayurvedic spice blends

(made from whole spices directly in India by Rekha from Jodhpur), hermetically sealed, shelf life 12 months)

I took many different spice mixes with me from India to Germany.

All spice mixtures were ground and mixed from organic spices by Rekha shortly before my departure.

The composition of the spices is Rekha’s own recipe. The recipes for the Ayurvedic spice mixes come from me.

I brought the following spice mixes with me:

Chai Masala

Add a pinch of the mixture to your black tea or milk tea. For your chai (2 cups), boil a teaspoon of black tea powder in a cup of water and a cup of me with some brown sugar if necessary. Add a pinch of masala to the tea

Ingredients: dried ginger, green cardamom, black pepper, long pepper, nutmeg

Chaat Masala

Chaat Masala is ideal for salads in dressing, for yoghurt dips and over snacks for a sour-spicy special Indian taste

Ingredients: cumin, ajwain, black salt, salt, chilli, coriander, black pepper, dry mint, dried mango, asafoetida

Garam Masala

Add a small amount of the mixture to the dish at the end, can also be sprinkled over salads, snacks, grilled food for a special taste experience.

Ingredients: coriander, cumin, stone flower, black cumin, black pepper, nutmeg, green cardamom, clove, black cardamom, mace, bay leaf, red chilli, star anise, rose petals, dry ginger, cinnamon.

Kitchen King Masala

Add the actual Indian curry mixture to the dish at the end of the cooking process for an excellent Indian taste. It hooks an incredible number of different spices and is ideal as a Tridosha spice mixture, ie it is ideal for all Dosha types or if you are a very balanced Dosha type. It’s Sarah’s favorite spice mix!

Ingredients: red chili, bay leaf, mace, cinnamon, cloves, green cardamom, black cardamom, cumin, fenugreek, salt, black salt, pink salt, mustard seeds, asafoetida, turmeric, nutmeg, ajwain, dry garlic, dry ginger, fenugreek leaves, yellow Lentils, white lentils

Ayurvedic spice mixes:

You can sprinkle the respective churna over your finished dish as a spice mixture, sauté ½ – 1 teaspoon of the spice mixture in the fat and then add to the dish or drink ½ teaspoon of the mixture in a glass of lukewarm water 15 minutes before the meal.

Depending on your constitution type, season, time of day or physical or mental condition, you can choose a specific churna.

If you’re not sure which one is right, let your taste decide. Often we like what we need at that moment.
