Get all the spices required to make the Malaysian Spice Mix.
Heat a nonstick pan over low flame, and add all the spices EXCEPT Turmeric powder.
Slow roast the spices and keep stirring it for all the spices to toss around. Takes about 4 to 5 mins to get roasted.
Transfer to a plate and let it cool down.
Take it in a mixer and pulse it a couple of times, pat down and again pulse to get a smooth powder.
Once the spice mix gets smooth, add the turmeric powder and mix well.
Store in an airtight box and use when required.
This can be used in any vegetarian or meat dishes as the final add.
I feel this will be quite flavorsome in biryanis as well.
