Let’s talk about the ingredients for Garam Masala Recipe

I had once made the tandoori masala. In that recipe, the masala was dry roasted after it was ready. Believe me… it made a difference. So I followed the same with garam masala too. If you are like… what is she talking! Go ahead with the conventional method and dry roast and cool the whole spices before grinding them. Instead, you can also keep them in sun for a couple of days.

Garam Masala Powder is used in many gravies such as chana masala. View the recipe here. Another spice mix that you should always have in your kitchen is chaat masala. View the recipe here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
