Ok, this is only going to be relevant to Indians on the list.
Does anyone know how to make the divine Maggi Noodles masala "tastemaker" mix? I haven't found a place to buy these seasoning packets except with the noodles, which are really low quality trans-fat containing abominations that I don't want ingest. But I hate to buy a package of noodles and throw away most of it just to get my hands on a seasoning packet.
So, to avoid waste, how can I prepare, or at least approximate, the masala mix from scratch?
