Dahi Masala

A mix of spices such as roasted cumin seeds powder, mint powder; pepper powder, etc that is used to season yogurt is dahi masala. However, it is not just limited to yogurt or dahi. Dahi masala can very well be used to flavor raita, lassi, chach, dahi vada, etc. It will not be wrong to state that dahi masala is also raita masala or dahi vada masala. A simple bowl of yogurt can be converted into a delish side dish with a pinch of dahi masala. The dahi masala recipe is very customizable. You can adjust the quantity of spices as per your liking. You can add different flavoring agents or omit the ones used in this recipe, as per your liking.

Ingredients for Raita Masala:

Salt: I do not use table salt for the yogurt or salad recipes. Therefore I have used black salt only.

Roasted Cumin Seeds Powder: Heat a pan. Add cumin seeds. Roast on low flame. Roast till aromatic. Let it cool down. Grind to a fine powder.

Mint Powder: Thoroughly wash mint leaves. Let these dry completely. Leave on the kitchen counter for 2-3 days. Once it dries completely grind to make a powder. Make sure to sieve it.

Peppers and chilies: I have used black pepper powder for this recipe. You can also use white pepper powder. Further little red chili powder has been used. You can skip it totally if you don’t like uncooked red chili powder.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
