DHANIA JEERA POWDER / CORIANDER & CUMIN POWDER



DHANIA JEERA POWDER / CORIANDER AND CUMIN POWDER

INGREDIENTS
Dhane / dhania seeds (coriander seeds)
4 cups
Jeera (cumin seeds)
1 cup


METHOD –
1)      Dry roast separately the dhania seeds and jeera seeds.
2)      Also grind them separately to a fine powder.
3)      Sieve the prepared powder for a finer texture and regrind the remaining husk. I prefer using it without sieving it as it gives maximum flavor.
4)      Store in an air tight container and use as required for light flavouring of gravies, rice or also in conjunction with any other masala for additional flavor.
5)     The dhania and jeera can also be used in equal quantity of 2 cups each to make this powder. it is preferable to make this powder fresh as dhania tends to loose its flavaour very easily.
