Masala is a blend of spices and herbs used primarily in Indian, caribbean,
malaysian cooking. In the US, we can get curry powder, which is just
another form of masala (I've learned this in the 3 years I've been here in
South Africa). You can mix your own or purchase from a spice shop that
carries Indian or Malay spices. I rarely use prepackaged curry powder, but
it will work in the recipe. I've included a couple of Masala recipes here.
(If you can find someone selling DURBAN SPICES, you've found the best
Masala mixtures.)
