How to make Malaysian Spice Mix

  • 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.
