Sandwich Masala

Theme : One Category - Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme - Sandwich Platters

While you eat a sandwich in Mumbai , you will love it for the masala these road side vendors add to the sandwich. Normally we add salt and pepper to sandwiches, but this Sandwich Masala alters the sandwich drastically. This is a Tarla Dalal recipe and I adopted it from a video at YouTube . The Sandwich Masala turned out exactly like you get in Mumbai and enhanced the  sandwich that I made for my Sandwiches with Potato Platter.

I made two sandwiches 
Grilled Potato and Cheese Sandwich

Sandwich Masala

2 tsp cumin seeds
2 cloves
1 tsp whole black pepper
4 tsp fennel seeds
4 tsp dry mango powder
1 star anise
1 small stick cinnamon
2 tsp black salt
Rock salt to taste ( I added 2 tsp )

Heat a pan.
Add cumin seeds, cloves, pepper corns,star anise and cinnamon.
Roast till the spices release a wonderful aroma, this should take about 2-3 minutes.
Remove from fire, let the spices cool down a little.
Grind them in a spice blender.
Add dry mango powder, black salt and rock salt.
Give it quick pulse in the grinder.
Remove and store in a jar.
