ABOUT Multipurpose Masala Powder RECIPE

Masala Powders form an integral part of Indian Cooking. Thanks to my mom who introduced me to this Multipurpose Masala Powder. Being a working professional this masala makes my life easier. I have it handy all the time. I can cook a varieties in a jiffy. I use it to make Puliogre Rice, Gojju (Sweet tangy gravy from Karnataka) and Gojju Avalakki / Tangy Beaten Rice or Poha. I am going to share my Mom’s recipe today.
