Achari Spice Mix/Achari Masala

It’s a Bright Day today and I am loving the weather too… Cool and pleasant.
During such weather we do feel like eating something hot and spicy??? Last Week I had made Mushroom Achari Tikka, the recipe which I will be posting soon.
Now u may be thinking she wrote about tikka and not posting it? Don’t you worry I am posting the Basic Masala required for the Tikka- Achari Masala

Here Is what we need:

15 kashmiri chillies
2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon nigella seeds (aka onion seeds, kalonji)
1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds

How to proceed:

Dry roast spices one at a time and transfer to Blender/Mixer Grinder. You want the spices to blend into fine powder(* see note). 

Here I have ground the spices into a fine powder, whereas u can even grind it into coarse powder if u are using it only for making dry achari tikka but by making it into a fine powder, u  Can use this Achari Mix to make Achari Tikka, Achari tikka Masala (gravy) and even pickles.

 Add lozza love and make it more Yummy!

Yields upto 25 gms or a bit more and u can use it thrice (with 200 gms paneer or mushroom or anything of ur choice) to make achari tikka.
