Easy Tandoori Spice Mix

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Tandoori Masala is a spice blend typically used for marinating meat or vegetables before cooking them in the tandoor! It’s a smoky, slightly sweet, and earthy spice blend that we’re loving! It’s perfect for seasoning chickpeastofuroasted vegetables, chicken, and beyond! – from minimalist baker   Serves 6

While the Whole Foods version of this blend is heavier on the paprika (making it red in colour), we prefer it to be heavier on the cumin for best flavor. Feel free to play around with the ratios to make it your own!

  • 2.25 Tab ground cumin
  • 1.5 Tab sweet paprika
  • 1.13 – 1.5 Tab granulated garlic (or sub half as much garlic powder)
  • 0.75 Tab ground ginger
  • 1.5 tsp ground coriander
  • 1.5 tsp ground cardamom


  • Add all spices to a small jar and shake or stir to combine. Will keep at room temperature for several months.
