Bisi bele bath masala powder Fresh or Bulk

The Bisi bele bath masala powder can be prepared fresh or in bulk and stored in an air tight container. I always make a batch ready for next 2-3 meals, which can be consumed in next 2-3 months as it is not a regular meal in my house. I would advise to make Bisi bele bath masala powder in small batches as they are best when they are fresh and might loose some aroma over a period of time. But they are the best when you make them home.

Making fresh masala’s at home is easy and not a laborious process. I understand gathering the ingredients feels like a daunting task, but believe me once you start making your own masala’s you would not want to buy the store bought one’s.

Bisi bele bath Masala Powder

This Bisi bele bath masala powder uses a few basic ingredients which are generally available in every Indian pantry. It is a matter of gathering them in the exact ratio, roasting it slowly and then grinding. Freshly made masala’s is ready in less than an hour.

I made this Karnataka style Bisi bele bath first time last year and we were in love with this flavourful one pot nutritious meal. A bit of planning and time is needed in this recipe, but it is surely a winner. I have followed the recipe from here.

I love the idea of making fresh masala mixes. Using fresh whole spices and roasting them brings out all the lovely tastes and fragrances. I am certainly going to make this mix in the future.

Love the colour of Bisi Bele Bath Masala Powder. I've not had the rice but planning to try out the recipe, so guess this homemade spice mixture will come in handy. Like that the recipe uses small quantities of spices therefore maintaining freshness.
