Indian cooks keep their most frequently used spices close at hand in a convenient container called a masala dabba. The round, stainless container, fitted with a tight lid, securely holds 7 individual storage pots. Pop the dabba’s lid and each is readily accessible—no futzing with the screw-on lids and shaker tops of most spice containers.
At 5 1/2 inches across, this model is small enough to suit any kitchen and sturdy enough to last a lifetime. Feel free to add your favorite spices and spice blends. Chris keeps his stocked with basics like cumin, coriander and Aleppo pepper in addition to his go-to seasoning blends za'atar and schichimi.
Seven pots securely held in a large circular container.
