Many years back a friend of mine passed me a flavorful biryani masala, which she got from another friend. After that, it tried to make something similar at home but somehow didn’t get the same flavor. Then I started using store-bought Biryani Masala, among them Aachi Biryani masala is my staple. Again when I moved to Hongkong, I got some spices from the shop and I wanted to try out Homemade Biryani masala.

I googled for recipes, but everything was different and I couldn’t arrive at a particular recipe. Later found out the fact that each state has their own style of making Biryani masala. Also, I spoke to a few people who are dealing with spice powders and got some knowledge of spices.

Finally arrived at a recipe using the knowledge I got and tried it at home. Go ahead and make this Tamilnadu style masala recipe.

You can use this biryani masala in kurma | salna too. A teaspoon of Home made biryani masala will be perfect for 1.5 cups of rice.

Here I have not added Marathi moggu, mace, ajwain seeds, Black cardamom, kasoori methi or dried plum. These spices are not used in the Tamilnadu style recipe.
