Dry roast  mustard seeds, when it will start to crackle,  transfer it to another bowl. Dry roast all the remaining ingredients one by one. Let it cool and grind it to fine powder. Store in a air tight container. Malvani masala is ready to use for malvani dishes like malvani kombadi rassa 🙂

1)To reduce the time, one can dry roast big spices like big cardamom, green cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg together.
2) Roast small spices together.
3) Do not roast everything together, Small spices will only get roasted.
4) I used my mixer grinder to grind the masala.
