Updated: Apr 8, 2022

Pilau Masala Blend

This spice blend is great in a pilau and can also be used in a biryani. Use approximately 2 to 3 tbsp

1 tbsp fennel seeds

1 tbsp coriander seeds

2 tbsp cumin seeds

10 green cardamons

2 black cardamoms

8 cloves

5 star anise

6 regular cinnamon sticks or 3 large sticks

2 tej patta

Salt 1 tbsp or to taste

If you prefer to keep the spices whole then crush the coriander and fennel seeds in a pestle and mortar before adding to the pilau.

You would only add turmeric, chilli powder, and/ or red chilli flakes and salt in addition to the spice blend.

Store the left over spices in an air tight jar.
