Shan Masala Tips

xena1441 | Jan 16, 201205:51 PM     37

I'm not sure if there are any other users of Shan Masala powders out there- I tend to add in a tablespoon here and there for flavor to Pakistani/Indian dishes along with some other spices. I've found that if you follow the back of the box, you'll usually end up with a mess.

Will you share what your favorite Shan masala spice box is and any helpful tips? One of mine is the Chicken Tikka Masala but I only add about 1/2 the packet, along with yogurt, ginger/garlic paste, and some lemon juice in the chicken marinade. I followed the directions on the box one time and it was really salty.

Tonight, I've got Chicken Karahi on the stove so we'll see how that one turns out (I am starting to cook Pakistani/Indian dishes more myself - usually my mom spoils me rotten with Pakistani food but I've got to learn someday!).
