A mix of spices that is perfectly balanced and absolutely indispensable for Indian cooking, that’s garam masala for you ladies and gentlemen! Garam masala is added to most of the gravies, especially in North India. Apart from that garam masala is also used to pep up snacks and appetizers.
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.
