Kadai Masala is a flavourful Indian spice blend that can make ordinary curry dishes extraordinary. Basically we roast whole spices and then grind them to make this masala powder.
(masala would be enough to prepare 1-2 curry dishes)
12-15 Black peppercorn
5-6 green cardamom pods
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1.5 tbsp coriander seeds
You can also grind bay leaf and cinnamon stick or use them as such in your dish.
Dry roast all your whole spices and then grind them to make a powder (masala) and you it in your dishes ( towards the end of the preparation method)
