Ayurvedic spice box MASALA DABA


The Ayurvedic Spice Box, or Masala Dabba as it is more often called in India, is a high-quality replica of a classic Indian spice chest that comes with an outer container, seven smaller containers, and a miniature spoon.

The Ayurvedic Spice Box or Masala Dabba is an ideal container for the most important spices used in Ayurvedic cooking; having them “at hand” (like paints on an artist's palette) makes it enjoyable and simple to experiment with new Indian cuisines. 

The Indian masala dabba (where masala refers to a spice mix and dabba refers to a box) is a convenient way to store and display a variety of spices commonly used in Indian cooking. Dabba contents vary by individual and family custom, but these seven are the most potent from an Ayurvedic viewpoint.

The 7 inner pots are made to store the following essential Ayurvedic spices, helping you to keep a harmonious balance of the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) while you cook.

  • Turmeric Powder – All Dosha balancing (“Tridoshic”)
  • Cumin Seeds – Vata & Pitta balancing
  • Mustard Seeds – Kapha balancing
  • Coriander Powder – Pitta balancing
  • Chilli Powder – Kapha balancing
  • Garam Masala – All Dosha balancing (“Tridoshic”)
  • Asafoetida Powder (known as “Hing”) – Vata balancing
