My husband and I used this spice mix for a tandoori shrimp and vegetables yogurt marinade. We broiled the veggies and shrimp on skewers. The flavor from spice mix was so good we didn't want the incredible taste in our mouths to go away. Great spice mix! Great for marinades! Incredibly great aroma!!!

This spice mix was great! I had everything on hand except for the mace and the brown cardamom but it still tasted great with those omitted. I didn't add any food coloring to the spice mix because I added it directly to the tandoori chicken so I can't review how adding it directly affects the spices. Thank you!

This is a great spice mix! I used it on some chicken ( butter chicken). I did not have and fenugreek or mace so I substituted fennel seeds and allspice. I did not use the food coloring either. Thank you for a great recipe.

I guess the mix is ok but this is not the full recipe for tandoori anything and the spice mix itself would be useless for most people. If someone knew nothing about indian cooking and tried to use it as described it would not be anything like indian food to be because there is NO heat. If you were to take this recipe and add it to 1 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup lemon juice and about 1/4 cup ground peppers (depending on what type of chillis you use and the amont of Heat you want.) and marinade what ever meat you are making then this would be useful. I give this a low rating because it is incomplete. A few lines of what you could do with the Masala would make it a truly useful recipe.
