I prepared this Goda Masala 1st, this is the most important thing used in Maharastrian cooking. It is very easy to make and can be stored in air tight container for several months..

Ingredients for Goda Masala :-

Coriander Seed - 1 Cup
Cumin Seed - 1/4 cup
White Sesame Seed - 1/3 cup
Cloves - 2 tbsp
Big Cardamom - 2 tbsp
Cinnamon Stick - 2 tbsp
Bay Leaf - 1/2 cup
Black Peppercorn - 2 tbsp
Oil to roast the spices - 1-2 tsp

Method for preparing Goda Masala :-

  1. Heat oil in a pan/kadhai and roast all the spices together till they turn dark in color.
  2. Make sure to keep stiring to avoid burnt spices.
  3. Once cool, grind them to make a fine powder and store in an air tight container.

Note :-
  • Some people also add dried coconut in this masala, i skipped that as coconut gives an oily smell, if kept for too long time.
  • U can substitute Goda Masala with Garam masala..
  • U can try it in pressure cooker or even in microwave and let me know the process..;-)

Try this yummy one and enjoy...:-)
