We would find Spice box/Masala Box in every household in India. It is a spherical container with small cups for each of the spices. We should fill one box with coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds, sesame seeds, split black gram, asafoetida, and turmeric. We should fill another with cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, fennel seeds, poppy seeds, turmeric and asafoetida.
The ingredients in the spice box are used regularly while cooking in Indian households. The spice box is considered a medicinal booth. It ensures balance in bodily health disturbances. Every ingredient in the spice box holds medicinal values and is used while preparing curries. It eases the process of cooking when all the ingredients required are organised at one place.
