Kadhai masala



Do you love the masalas prepared by your grand parents. Then you will definitely love this masala.
I am sharing here the preparation procedure of Kadai masala.
Kadhai is a Indian word which means wok. Kadhai foods are very popular and delicious.
Kadhai masala is prepared by roasting some dry spices,then blending these dry masalas into coarse powder.

When i was roasting this masala, my kitchen was filled with beautiful aroma.
Kadai powder is very useful in both veg and nonveg dishes. It is aromatic and used in various kadai dishes like kadai paneer, kadai mashroom, kadai chicken etc.
This prepared masala can be stored in a air tight containers for 3months.




  1. dry red chilies                      4-5 no
  2. coriander                               1 tbsp
  3. cumin                                     1 tsp

  • Again roast dry red chillies, cardamom, cinnamon,cloves, peppercorn,  bay leaf,  till its done.
    Take these out and mix it with previously roasted masalas.

  • Grind these roasted masalas into coarse powder.
    Its done now.

  • Remove the seeds from the red chilies to reduce the spiceness.
  • These  dry spices can be roasted together.
  • Half of black cardamom can be added with the above ingredients.
  • Few people add fenugreek seeds with the masala.but I never add methi with kadai masala.
  • keep the masala in a airtight container .use within 3 month.


Cooking is my passion.i love to play with myriad tastes of spices . I belong to a odiya family by birth but marriade to a bengoli person.the crash of cultures between two families induced me to cook innovatively so as to make everyone happy.

So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
