Kerla kurma masala Recipe:
1 cup coriander seeds (sabut dhaniya)
3/4 cup poppy seeds (khus khus)
5-10 red Kashmiri chillies
4 - 1 inch cinnamon sticks (dalchini)
8-10 green cardamom pods (hari elaichi)
2 tbsp fennel seeds (saunf)
1 star anise (optional)
2 bay leaves (tej patta)
1 tbsp cloves (laung)
1 tbsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp black pepper corns (sabut kali mirch)
1/2 tbsp dry ginger powder (sukhi adrak)
2 tbsp roasted gram dal (Bengali roasted dal - you may use chana dal - I used chana dal initially to make this powder, as I did not have roasted gram dal)
Apart from this, you need 2 tsp turmeric powder, which we will add after dry roasting all the above ingredients. Cool them down. Grind together and then add turmeric powder (gives a beautiful color to your kurma masala).
