This goan spice powder is stored in every goan household. The spice mix / garam masala is mixed with rice powder/coarse rice flour and applied to slices of veggies to get Fodi/ crispies/ chips/ fries.


The Pednekar garam masala is the more stronger that the normal Goan Samar and used while preparing non-veg dishes too. Just roast grated coconut & onions to brown and grind to a fine paste. Add the masala powder and apply to shellfish such as clams, crabs etc and it makes a tasty dish.
