Ghee Roast Powder

Ghee Roast recipes are a huge favourite in my family, be it Chicken, Prawns, Paneer, Mushroom or Egg Ghee roast. Once a fortnight, I make a ghee roast dish. Hence, it becomes very convenient to have a ghee roast powder readily available instead of making the ghee roast masala from scratch. With the ghee roast powder handy, it doesn’t take long to whip up a ghee roast dish.
