"Masala" actually translates to "spice mixture". By keeping a collection of spices on hand, Indian cooks make Masala for the specific dish they are cooking. You can find an airtight spice tray at any Indian market. By toasting and grinding whole spices you get a more intense aroma and flavor from the mixture.
