Units Scale
  • 50g Cumin Seed

  2. Once the kadhai is hot, put in 50g of cumin seeds and gently roast them over a low flame for around 3 minutes.
  3. During this time, the cumin seeds will change their color and release a delightful fragrance.
  4. Include 2 dry red chilies and continuously stir the spices for an additional minute, making sure they don't get burnt.
  5. Switch off the flame and keep stirring for another minute to prevent scorching of the spices.
  6. Allow the spices to cool down to room temperature.
  7. Once the roasted spices are at room temperature, transfer them to a spice grinder and grind them into a coarse powder.
  8. Your Bhaja Moshla is now ready!
