  • Garam masala recipe

    To make Garam Masala, use the following ingredients:

    2 cardamom pods, seeded
    1 teaspoon whole cloves
    30 whole peppercorns
    2 teaspoons whole cumin seed
    1 2-inch piece cinnamon stick
    1 teaspoon coriander seeds
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    The best method for making garam masala is to toast and then grind the ingredients. This is accomplished by placing the seed ingredients one at a time in a pan over medium high heat, and shaking them until they just begin to smoke and release their distinctive aromas. It will take approximately 1-3 minutes. Be sure not to burn the seeds!

    Place the toasted ingredients in a spice mill, and grind to a fairly fine mixture. The garam masala can then be stored in a tightly sealed glass jar for up to 6 months. Any time after that, and the spices will begin to lose flavor and aroma.

    I use garam masala for a rub for roasted or grilled chicken and beef. The aroma and flavor are outstanding, and chicken baked or grilled will retain the excellent flavor of the garam masala.

    Try garam masala today. Cooking with the spices of northern India is an experience that every adventurous chef should try!

    That's interesting. Why wouldn't you simply buy the garam masala online?

      My bad.. I should've clarified my question. If you're making it because you're passionate about it, then I really don't have a question. I was only wondering if there was something bad with the stuff that's found online.
