Dabeli masala powder Recipe - Homemade Dabeli masala powder recipe - Kutchi Masala - Back to basic recipe

I had this chat item during my stay in Chennai. I have tasted diff masala. This happend 6-8 months ago. After that every time when my mum ask for list of things to buy for my India trip this masala will always be there. But couldn't find it in Trichy or Chennai. I asked few of my north Indian colleagues but every time the result is negative. I have decided to try out masala powder at home. Originally I have noted down from Priti's indiankhana. When was planning for making the masala I saw this from Binjal space. In the end I made my own mix based on spices I had. It came out so nice stay tuned for for Dabeli chat
