Based simultaneously in India and Oakland, California, Diaspora Co. is a queer, mission-driven business radically reinventing the spice trade. Their tandoori masala is made with a potent blend of Diaspora's carefully sourced ethical spices from over 40 regenerative farms across India and Sri Lanka. It includes 15 single-origin, freshly-harvested spices for a perfect balance of spicy, sour, sweet, earthy, and umami flavors. Featuring turmeric, cumin, and coriander for earthiness; salt, garlic, and ginger for a wide, flavorful base; Byadgi Chillies for a dynamic kick and added aroma and brightness; amchur for tartness; black cardamom and Sirārakhong Hāthei Chillies for smokiness; jaggery for sweetness; and cinnamon, green cardamom, fenugreek leaves, and saffron for richness.
The spices are blended, and any added heat or fire will wake up those flavors and let them fully absorb into your dish. Whether you use yours in a dry rub or a yogurt-based marinade; chicken, beef, shrimp, paneer, or veggies; with a grill, oven, or stove - this Tandoori Masala plays well with a range of flavors, fats, and forms of heat.

I put this on my salmon belly and broiled it and was delicious. The spice is fresh and a great mix to put on proteins. Zero effort flavor.
