Takaungu is a small fishing village just South
of Kilifi on the Kenya North Coast. This masala is mildly spiced.
Roast coriander seeds, cumin, and fenugreek seeds separately for
a few minutes until their rich aroma is given off. Combine with
all other ingredients and grind.
Pass the mixture through a sieve and store in an airtight jar.
Yield: about 20 tablespoons.
NOTE: Roasting the ingredients
separately is important, since each gives off its characteristic
aroma at a different time.
