In the kitchen: Indian Masala Box

from top right:
chat masala (really good in yogurt and on veggies)
hot curry powder (great in noodles and with okra)
cumin seeds
salt (right?!)
tandoori chicken powder
red chili
and in the middle, my favorite - coriander seeds (good with potatoes and in samosas)

do you guys have any spices/ masalas that you love to use? i would love to add some to my little box this is my box of staple spices i use often. the little guy above has been used and abused and seriously my dishes are nothing without him. so.. what's in your box?
