  • Chicken masala powder is a red chilli powder prepared with red chillies and whole garam masala which is used for making non vegetarian recipes.
  • You can replace chicken masala powder with our regular sambar powder. But i prefer using chicken masala because of its nice flavour.
  • If you don’t have chicken masala powder, you can use sambar powder along with 1/4 tsp of garam masala powder as an alternate.
