Red Masala paste

Here's a basic red masala spice mix you can make ahead and bottle for upto a month. This is great as a fish marinade or the base of a good curry.

15 red dried chillies(available at most Indian stores)
1 tbsp Ginger paste
1 tbsp garlic paste
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp black peppercorns
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil

Grind the red chillies till it's as fine as possible, then add all the other dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients and grind to a thick paste. Add a little water and a tsp of oil.
