First thing I would ask you to invest in is a Spice Box/Masala Dabba. You should have it if you are cooking Indian food regularly. For those of you who are not familiar with a ‘Spice Box’, it is a flat container either steel, wooden or plastic with a tight fitting lid. Inside this container there are 6-7 small containers which hold the spices or masalas. I am using masala dabba since the beginning of my cooking journey and I have seen most the Indian households having at least one.

Having a masala dabba makes cooking so much easier. It is so convenient rather than opening multiple containers for different spices.

Few tips to masala dabba users – always store the dabba in a cool dry place, make sure to store it in a cabinet close to the stove so that it’s easy to reach out and use; only fill the spices as per your usage and make sure to clean the dabba regularly; keep the dabba away from moisture so that the spices/ masalas are not spoilt.

Dears, here is my Spice Box…..
