You know why I have written ‘for regular use’ there ? We use the home made masala consists of fennel,cardamom,clove and cinnamon for the regular curries and all in Kerala.Some add black pepper as well.Whatever,this is just about the regular use.If you are making a Biryani for example,the masala changes completely with more spices like maze,nutmeg or kaala jeera.There the flavour might be totally unique.So,this is a simple masala powder which you may use to bring a subtle change in flavour or to enhance some tastes.Here is what I use.
Nothing much to write here.Dry roast 3 tbsp fennel seeds,6 cinnamon sticks of almost 2 inches,8 cardamoms and 11 cloves and grind it to a fine powder using the small jar of the grinder.Keep in airtight containers and use.
Below is the picture of what I used,to clear your doubts,if you have any !!
