It's not a spice rack, that's for sure.

From the photo of the tin, you can see Tumeric, Chilli Powder, Cinamon I think in the centre, Dhana Jeera, Cumin seeds, Rai and Gharam Masala I think.

Separate boxes as opposed to this just don't do the job.

Mine has
- Red chilli powder
- Whole cumin
- Mustard seeds
- Turmeric powder
- Coriander powder
- Dried mango powder (anchor)
- Asafoetida (heeng) stored in a little glass jar as its quite pungent

I would advise against putting Garam masala as it will lose its aroma if you are not a frequent user.

True. I only keep the branded masala in the tin, I keep my homemade Cheeky Cheeky Super Fire & Smoke blend in a glass jar along with my black cardies. I keep my Moruga Scorpion & Carolina Reaper chilli powders in the fire resistant safe though

​And lose track of the expiry date
Long live Bangladesh Cuisine.
Another essential spice to get is chopped fenugreek leaves "Methi", lovely colour and texture.

It's would be hard for many to understand importance of this..

If you find out of date spices in your cupboard, this isn't for you, get a free Schwartz rack when they do the offer

Ours has chilli powder, paprika, cumin, coriander, garam masalla, fenugreek and turmeric in.. the ones we use most when making curries from scratch.

It's very handy to have this instead of all the individual spice jars coming out of the cupboard.
Masala dabba. We've had one for years now but as we cook so much using spice, we have to keep topping it up all the time lol. They have these in pretty much every indian kitchen.
I have used this before but the tin is not air right and the spices do not last long in it. Plus its very easy for one spice to spill into another pot especially if taking off a high shelf. Looks great but not very functional after you buy it. Plastic containers are much better for keeping the spices fresher and not leaking into each other.
you reckon they'll have these at this price when I get paid?

Nostalgia purchase for some it seems, from the look of it, it's not really fit for purpose in most kitchens. e.g. no labels, no dating, not airtight.
