What do I put in my Masala Dabba?

This is the most common question asked…What do I put in my Masala Dabba?

You’ll be pleased to know that there’s no fixed rule to what spices you keep in a masala dabba but a good guideline to selecting your spices is choosing herbs and spices that you most commonly use. For example if its a simple curry base then you can’t go wrong with turmeric, cumin, coriander etc, but you can individualise it to your own cooking preference.

While the masala dabba is used for spice storage, its greatest convenience is having all your favourite spices in one handy container ready to go, its so much easier than scratching around your pantry for different bottles and packets trying to get your spices quickly to hand for cooking.

With your container ready to go, there’s nothing to hold you back now, save even more time in the kitchen by having more than one masala dabba!  Who’d a thought?   Fill each one with the relative herbs and spices to the cuisine you’re cooking on any given night.  e.g You may keep a masala dabba for Thai, Italian, or even use one for your bbq rubs ingredients.  Isn’t that a little fancy!
