Homemade Bafat Masala Recipe

This is an easy-to-make blend that is popular in Indian cooking. It's often used to season and flavour pork, but I find it works well with other meats and also makes an excellent general seasoning

Makes about 10 tbsp

3 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp whole cloves
1 x 3 inch piece cinnamon
20-30 dried curry leaves (optional)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick

  • Finely grind the cinnamon pieces along with the whole peppercorns, cumin, coriander, mustard and cloves

  • Once ground add to a bowl

  • Stir in the chili, ginger, garlic and turmeric powders

  • Finally, and if using, crumble in the curry leaves and stir again

That's all there is to it!

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
