How do I do it: Meat masala | Kukskitchen

There are a million recipe mixes to make meat masala depending on the country, state, region or even the household you are coming from.

Here is one that I frequently use. Amongst shop brought meat masala's I luv Ann's meat curry masala the best.


Dried chilli flakes - 1 tsp
Coriander seeds - 1 tsp
Ground turmeric - 1 tsp
Black peppercorns - 5
Cumin seeds (jeerakam) - 1 tsp
Fennel seeds ( perum jeerakam) - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Cloves - 4
Cardamom seeds - 4


Place all the spices into a dry frying pan and heat until lightly toasted. Remove the spices from the pan, let it cool down and then grind to a fine powder.

This stores for up to one month.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
