Achari Masala
Nothing can beat the flavors of homemade spice Powders. Yep!! I am talking about the Achari Masala Powder that I recently made.

Yohoo… One more recipe to my Indian Cuisine repertoire this month! We love Achari Curries – specially Achari Aloo, Achari Bhindi, Achari Paneer and Achari Gobi too.
It was last week, I posted a recipe for Achari Gobi, where these essential 5 spices were dry roasted and ground just enough for the curry. Since we use a lot of these Spice Powder mix in my curry, I often grind and prepare a larger batch!! Just like Homemade Sambar Powder, Rasam Powder, Andhra Chutney Powder , Edible Gun Powder, this Achari Masala Powder is loaded with flavors with dry roasted spices.

Homemade Spice Mixes reflect the personality and that touch of individual person. A little proportion and a little over or under roasting could change the whole dimension the Spice flavors. Even today, I bring my Sambar and Rasam Powder from home and enjoy the flavors with Amma’s( Mom) Hands.

But I enjoy learning and making these Spice blends over the course of years. Today in this post, I am sharing an Achari Masala ( Pickling Spices ) powder that is commonly used in my cooking at home.
