Maggi Tastemaker

Maggi Tastemaker is the masala packs you get with the Maggi noodles.
My daughter loves Maggi noodles but with lots of soup so I always need extra masala to satisfy her.
I have been trying to make homemade masala as I know what goes in there with natural preservatives rather than all the chemicals.
I came across Arthi's blog and found the recipe, I tried it and after some modifications, got a recipe that is pretty close to the original Maggi out of the box but much more fresh. 
Everyone in the house loved it.
