The Deshi Ghaati Masala is a potent red chilli spice blend with origins in the Western Ghats. Used in curry and vegetable, it is a universal masala for a people who have learnt to do plenty with little. The Gavran Kombdi Rassa (village-style chicken curry) comes alive with a spoonful, and it’s also used ready-to-eat alongside Vada Pav or Batata Bhaji.

Provenance

Named after the ghaats or the Sahyadris, a north west mountain range that runs alongside the Deccan Plateau, the Deshi Ghaati Masala represents through its earthy flavour the strong link that the people of Paschim Maharashtra or Desh have with their land. The region – which became the seat of the Maratha empire under Chhatrapati Shivaji in the 17th century – experiences unforgiving summers and severe winters, testing its residents' indomitable spirit a little more each season.
