KOLKATA BIRYANI MASALA RECIPE/ CALCUTTA STYLE BIRYANI SPICE POWDER RECIPE ~AUTHOR ~ PIYALI MUTHA
- Remove from the flame, cool and transfer to a mortar. Add the Rose petals. Using the pestle pound into a smooth powder.
- NOTE ~ Hand pounding all the spices takes time. So you can use a coffee grinder to grind the roasted whole spices into a fine powder.
- However it is always better to hand pound the whole spices to get your KOLKATA BIRYANI MASALA POWDER as all the essential oils of the spices remain intact making your spice powder more fragrant and flavoursome. The high speed of your coffee grinder crushes the spices in no time thereby the essential oils are lost in this process.
- Nonetheless homemade powders are always a preferred choice than store bought ones.
