Licious Meat Masalas

Our range of meat masalas is brought alive by meat experts through carefully crafted masalas that celebrate authentic flavours, aromas and tastes. Available in single-use sachets to maintain freshness, the spices are ground at very cold temperatures using cryogrinding technology, which helps lock-in the aroma and flavour of the spices by maintaining the loss of essential oils. Further, the masalas have natural meat tenderisers, which helps make your cooking process effortless and quick, by reducing the marination time of the meat.

The Khansama Biryani Masala is inspired by the experienced cooks known as ‘Khansama’ who used to create delicious recipes for royal kings. This masala is the perfect tribute to the Khansamas and their royal biryanis.

Buy Licious Goat Biryani Cut

To cook this delicious Khansama Mutton Biryani, try our Licious Goat Biryani Cut which has a meaty chunk of bone-in and boneless goat meat.
