Having homemade spice powders is always a boon. I normally never buy readymade powder other than Channa Masala and Pav Bhaji Masala. I have even tried my own Channa Masala, which is still sitting idle, waiting for the book to be published.
Apart from these two, I have always made sure I grind my own masala powder. One of the main spice powders has been the Biryani Masala Powder, which turns out so well. I have used that powder in different recipes and have always ended up with a delicious dish.
Everybody at home loves tandoori dishes. I looked up many recipes both from the net and from the books. Each one has its own story and different flavours. I finally adapted from Mallugirl, I had loved her grilling when she had done.
So when it was finally my chance for me to make these, I ended up making it first with Aloos, and many more followed. Tandoori Aloo was the first dish I made with this powder. Tandoor Paneer Tikka was simply awesome with this masala.
