Goda Masala Recipe - Add Authentic 
Flavours to Your Maharastrian Dishes

It's safe to say that this homemade goda masala is a unique mix of ingredients! And probably quite unlike one you've made before. A flavourful blend of seeds, sweet spices and coconut, it's really easy to make and can be used in many Maharastrian dishes. (See the bottom of the page for more recipes)

Note: This blend uses a few whole spices. If it is more convenient you can use pre-ground powders if that's all you have, and reduce the amount the recipe requires by half. For example for 4 tablespoons of coriander seeds you would use 2 tablespoon pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.

1 tbsp white peppercorns
4 tsp sesame seeds
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp cloves
1 x 3 inch piece of cinnamon
6 mace blades

Note: To make this blend even more authentic and tasty, dry toasting the cloves, coriander, cumin, peppercorns and sesame seeds before cooling and grinding is what the Marathi people do.
