Sandwich masala

Growing up I always complained to my mother that her sandwiches never had the punch which I found in the street side stall made sandwiches

Many years later one of the famous sandwich maker in santacruz (Mumbai) started selling his secret sauce the sandwich masala. To date I think nothing in the world matches the taste of his mixture.
I make some batch to last a few months quite often. We do not eat as much sandwiches but this masala works with almost anything…

I add it on top of parathas just before serving them topped with ghee . I also add them to chholes when in a mood to make a quick fix and want to avoid the usual routine onion tomato paste…

This is good to be sprinkled on salads and vegetables as well…you tell me where else you think you can use this in your kitchen recipes.

My penultimate recipe for the cooking carnival will be this beautiful mixture to keep you happy on rush days..

1/2 cup Cumin seeds
1/4 cup black pepper
2 inch cinnamon sticks
1/4 cup amchur powder
2 tspn rock salt 
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp cloves 
a pinch of red chillies 
1) In a non stick pan roast all ingredients until they are toasted and smell nice
2) Let them cool down. Now grind them to a fine powder
3) Store in air tight container.

Use as required
