Mrs Mahal’s Masala


Our dry masala blend is great all-rounder for meat, fish and vegetables. Use in curries, soups, stews, or use to flavour dahl or simply sprinkle over your favourite dish as a seasoning. Made from a blend of cumin, cardamom, cinnamon sticks, cloves, mace, coriander and black pepper, Mrs Mahal’s Masala is sure to be a cupboard staple.


The story behind the Masala.

One day my mum asked me “where will you get your Masala from when I’m not here anymore?” Her question really got me thinking!

I used her Masala in lots of my dishes and I couldn’t imagine cooking without it. I realised that Mum had a wonderful gift to pass on, which had been in our family for generations.

If I didn’t learn to make her Masala something special would be lost and my cooking would never be the same again!

Mum learnt to make Masala form her Aunty in India, now she has passed it on to me and in the future my daughters will learn the recipe too.

It’s our family’s legacy and we hope you enjoy using Mrs Mahal’s Masala just as much as we do!
