Kitchen King Masala Powder Recipe Alternative [No onion garlic all- purpose masala ]

I rarely buy readymade masala powders ever since I started following my mother in law's all- purpose curry powder recipe. It is ALL-ROUNDER, as my MIL uses this masala to flavor all her curries, stir fries, and vrat thalis in Odisha. Now it has become my favorite curry powder too. If you are crazy for Indian spices, then quit store-bought flavors because this is THE BEST curry powder recipe ever. I am sure you won't find a MATCH elsewhere.

My search for the best curry powder ends here. I have been struggling to find one since my return from Odisha. Here's the ONLY one curry masala that you need to flavor your curries. Kuch bhi- take my words for it. This recipe takes inspiration from MIL's Odia curry powder recipe.

Chalo, without wasting time, let's get into the recipe to make our own Kitchen King substitute, which is way better than the store-bought stuff.

We all stock coriander seeds in our homes. I bought a lot of it from the hills of Uttarakhand because I use coriander a lot.

So the star of all masalas remains coriander. You need 1 cup of it.

Let's add all other masalas before roasting them for a couple of minutes.

You ll also need red chili whole, 2 tbsp of fennel seeds or saunf, 1.5 tbsp jeera/cumin seeds, 1tsp mustard seeds, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 3 black cardamom, 10vgreen cardamom, few javitri threads, 8 lavang/ cloves, 1/2 tsp black peppercorns, 1 medium cinnamon stick/dalchini, 2-3 bay leaves, 

Let's dry roast whole spices for 2 min @200 deg c in aurfryer. you may do so in kadahi too. don't roast for more than 2-3 min in kadahi. 

Chalo ji, now it's time to pulse roasted spices to powder along with 1 tbsp turmeric, 1 tbsp kashmiri red chili powder 1 tbsp salt, sift the masala powder. 

Pulse the grits along with 1 tbsp roasted kasuri methi, 1 tbsp roasted methi dana and 1 tbsp shah jeera. now you are just 1 step away from making the most flavorful curry powder masala at home. sift the powder and grind it again until you get fine powder that passes through the sieve. congratulations, you have just made your own kitchen king substitute that can flavor your curries and stir fries. don't blame ravneet bhala if you get addicted to this stuff. ab ek like to banti hai na. take care until we meet next with yet another healthy recipe.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
