One of the most requested recipe on my website, Maharashtrian special, very aromatic Goda Masala. It has such a unique flavor that is hard to describe. A spoon of masala in every dish - adds extra delicacy to whole dish!
Dry grated coconut
Dried red chilies
1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
3 Medium (Cinnamon Sticks)
Dry roast grated dry coconut, sesame seeds separately till it gets nice brown color.
Add a tsp of oil and fry rest of the ingredients one by one till they get dark brown color and nice aroma starts to release from the spices.
Mix all the ingredients with fried onion and grind to make a smooth powder.
Maharashtrian cuisine is rich with varied spices, nuts and seasonings in most dishes. Here is the recipe to make a frequently used fragrant masala or spice mix called Maharashtrian Goda Masala using common Indian spices. Ideally used in curries!
