A sleek Masala Box /Storage Bin Giveaway from GitaDini



Masala Dabba a round spice box usually made of steel is one of the quintessential part of many Indian kitchens. It has seven smaller bowls inside which holds seven different spices (ground or whole) or spice blends (masala). Growing up this was an essential part of my mom’s kitchen and this was the first thing that came out when the cooking started for the day. And now years later a stainless steel dabba filled with spices is an integral part of my kitchen too.

When a representative from the company GitaDini contacted me about the company and their products I was intrigued. Amongst their many products the one that caught my attention was this very different version of the Masala box; a new take on the traditional version. With twelve small containers this can hold five more spices or spice blends more than the traditional ones. As the box is made of plastic it is not bulky but much lighter than the ones made of steel. And the best thing is that if you do not want to store the usual spices, you can store something else.

    I do own a Masala Dabba. Something very simple I got from South India- Bangalore about 10 years ago. It is made of steel and has 6 boxes to hold the masala and a measuring spoon. Nothing fancy- but it is getting time to replace it..

  3. Manasi says:

    OMG, that is such a cute Masala Dabba!

    I have big and blue, Tupperware Masala Dabba I am using for the last 7 years now.
    I have ( on a road trip/0 used it just as a dabba! kept all the compartments at home and put idlis in it, it was so useful, specially since it is larger than the average masala dabba.
    Unfortunately, one of us ( M or I, we are not sure who) kept the cover near the stove and the cover almost melted, well, almost, the cover now has a weird ‘bump’ where we saved it and plunged it under a stream of cold water 🙂
    No harm done 🙂

    Hi, This is such a cute masala box ! I have a steel masala dabba that my mother gave me about 8 years ago. It has 7 cups (that I use to keep mustard seeds, methi seeds, coriander seeds, urad dal, channa dal, cumin seeds and black pepper) and a plate on the top (that I use to keep dried red chillies). Thank you for maintaining such a nice blog and for this cute give away.

  11. Rohini says:

    I have created a masala dabba, when I didnt have one before. My friend who was leaving for India for good had given me her microwave muffin mold.So I used my baby’s gerber bottles and put them in the mold without lids. So this became my new masala dabba, which I use almost every day.

    Thank you for giving me a chance to share this.

    I do not have a nifty set of containers such as this ensemble. I have a bunch of purchased spice cans in a drawer that I pull out when preparing a spiced up dish. Thanks for the neat set. Even if I don’t receive this attractive masala dabba an idea has been generated to come up with one, home made or purchased.

  20. Madhuri says:

    I own like 9glass jar containers. They are basically nescafe coffee containers that i used to buy from a mexican grocery store called Fiesta mart in tx . The best part is visible. I grabbed few tiny plastic spoons from kroger grocery store at the bakery section. They ate tiny spoons used as sample spoons. I asked few from a lady working at the bakery section. I been using these containers for 8yrs. Earlier I never owned 1. They ate round and cute and all of them fit in my 1 shelf . Inspite of my moving from 1 state to other, I make sure I don t throw them. I wrap em safe cos those coffee powder isn’t available anymore :).

    Now seeing these masala dabba I sure would love to own 1.
