Malaysian Spice Mix

Malaysian Spice Mix

Malaysian Spice Mix is a ground spice blend combining about 12 different spices and ingredients. This gives a wonderful taste and aroma to the cooked dish.

I selected Condiments as the theme for my Pick 3 dishes from 3 Asian Countries, I chose Srilanka as the first country to explore, then decided on making this aromatic Malaysian Spice Mix that is mostly used for meat dishes.

When I was roasting the spices, my kitchen had a wonderful aroma and Athamma came in to see what I was doing. I was supposed to get all the condiments done during the weekend. As expected, things happen and I ended up making these spices blends on a weekday.

Athamma was telling me that I should label it properly and use it in as many times as I could. History shows the many spice blends that are stocked in the freezer, though used quite a number of times, are still stocked well for later use. Nobody knows when that later time will come.

However, I have already used the Sri Lankan Curry Powder in some snacks, in the quick masala rice that I made for Boys lunch box yesterday and both the dishes were so good. I reminded her that I am using it more than I expected I would.

Athamma will be leaving next week for SIL’s place and we will be missing her so much. It is wonderful having her around, especially when I am cooking and seeing how much she enjoys my experiment or dishing out new dishes.

So this Malaysian Spice Mix is the second dish for the Pick 3 dishes from 3 Asian Countries, I selected to do 3 different spice blends.

How to make the Malaysian Spice Mix

Get all the spices required to make the Malaysian spice Mix.
Heat a nonstick pan over low flame, and add all the spices EXCEPT Turmeric powder.
Slow roast the spices and keep stirring it for all the spices to toss around. Takes about 4 to 5 mins to get roasted.
Transfer to a plate and let it cool down.
Take it in a mixer and pulse it a couple of times, pat down and again pulse to get a smooth powder.
Once the spice mix gets smooth, add the turmeric powder and mix well.
Store in an airtight box and use when required.
This can be used in any vegetarian or meat dishes as the final add.
I feel this will be quite flavorsome in biryanis as well.

  1. Loving your series on spice mix. So true not sure when that later comes, I have some stock in freezer to use later, which never comes 🙂

  2. This sounds almost like the garam masala powder.Nothing beats the flavor of the freshly ground spice powder..

  3. again I feel so spoiled that I can easily get Malaysian curry powder in Chinatown – different ones for veg, meat, chicken or fish – But these home made versions would probably be more fresh and flavorful

  4. This happens with me Valli. I have some spices in the freezer and I don’t even know what they are as I forgot to label them. Guess this happens with all food bloggers. That is such a flavourful spice mix and no wonder your kitchen was filled with the aroma.

  5. It feels so good to see that the spice mix of different countries are almost similar to our garam masala with a little variation. No wonder we can use it in our Indian curries as well.

  6. My shelves also have different spice blends and then I am never sure which is what. So need to label them!! That’s a fabulous spice blend Valli! It is really unique to add rice to a spice mix.
