Basic Savory Sattvic spice mix is one of the three must-have sattvic seasonings I have in my pantry at all times. This spice mix is one of the most delicious pantry essentials that make positive pranic food quick and easy to make. I love using this spice mix to season hot savory dishes. It is perfect for stews, curries, soups, and even pasta.
Positive Pranic Food Seasoning
This mix is full-body seasoning with a bit of heat, mostly coming from black mustard seed and black pepper. The blend itself is not too hot. But if you’d like to have a mild version of it, you can use yellow mustard seed instead of black or brown mustard, and reduce the amount of mustard and black pepper from 2 tbsp to 1 tbsp.

It is important to dry roast the spices separately to achieve an even roast and perfect flavor. Because all of the seeds in this blend have different density and size, roasting them together will not work out well.
Another critical thing to pay attention to: at the very end of the roasting, you should add ginger and turmeric powder for a brief moment. Usually, I add fenugreek seeds. When they are done, I stir in ginger and turmeric powder and remove from the heat right away. You can see in the video the way I do it.
Things I used to make it happen
Here is the full recipe for this positive pranic food seasoning. Enjoy!
- 3 tbsp coriander seeds
- 4 tbsp cumin seeds
- 1-2 tbsp black peppercorns
- 1-2 tbsp brown mustard seeds (use yellow mustard for a milder taste)
- 1.5 tbsp fenugreek seeds
- 2 tbsp ginger powder
- 1-2 tbsp turmeric powder
- Using a skillet, dry roast all the spices separately on medium-low heat (except ginger and turmeric) one at the time, frequently stirring to prevent burning. It will take from 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the size of the seed. Roast them until fragrant, but don't let them brown.
- At the very end of the roasting process, add ginger and turmeric powder, stir well and remove from heat.
- Place seeds in a bowl right away and allow them to cool.
- Transfer ingredients to a coffee grinder* and grind to a fine powder.
- Place in an airtight spice jar, and store in a cool, dry place*.
