There's just something about this image up here that makes my mouth kind of water. Well, if you can't guess it already, I am a sucker for spices, and by spices I do not mean chillies. What I love about cooking (I surely do not really enjoy cooking but love the process of mixing and matching spices) is how I get to play around with different types of spices.
For the past few months or so, almost a year or more now actually, I have started preparing most of my spices (masalas) at home. So whether it is coriander powder (dhaniya), turmeric powder, garam masala, sabzi masala, cinnamon powder (dalcheeni), cardamom powder (elaichi), cumin powder (jeera) or any other mixed spice, I try to make it as much at home as possible. And yes, of course I have noticed the huge difference it brings in the aroma and taste.
With so many health benefits that come attached with these spices, it is no wonder that I have made sure my daughters are also inclined to have them as much as they can. They are 8 and 2 now, and have already developed a strong taste and palate where they can appreciate the different spices I use. So why do I use them so much and so regularly? Of course because they add that much more flavor to the dishes I prepare, and of course also because they are loaded with so many health benefits that most of us are not aware of.
For today, I'll share the top 5 spices I use at home. Top 5 not just from health but more on the frequency that I use them.
