It’s impossible to say for sure whether East Indian spice mixtures like this masala are absolutely authentic, in large part because India is such a vast country that a particular spice blend might have come from a single indentured laborer who hailed from a small village off the beaten track. Additionally, although the ingredients are standard Indian spice-box issue, the ratio of individual spices can vary from area to area and cook to cook. You may want to experiment with this mix until you find a combination you really like.
