What Spices are in Tandoori Spice Mix?

Curry powder, garam masala, ground ginger, ground cumin, ground cardamom, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, salt, ground black pepper.

Each region has their own special blend, and each family probably has their own preferences, but this combination seems to be the most common.

Whisk all of the spices together in a bowl, or shake together in a seal-able canister…..

Notes: (contains affiliate links)

  • A Tandoori Spice Mix made in India contains Kashmiri Chile Powder to give it a fiery, red hue and moderate heat. I am not a fan of moderate heat, so I left it out of my mix. If you like spicy add some to your mix.
  • Garam Masala “may” be found in the spice aisle of your local grocery store. If not, try an Asian market or order from Amazon.
  • I did not think to use Red Curry Powder to lessen the yellow and pump up the red in my spice mix, but I will next time.

My first attempt at Indian food was this Tikka Masala that I made almost 4 years ago. It was too spicy for me, and I found out that I am allergic to coconut, so I took a break from trying out new recipes…..
