Homemade Garam Masala

 

Homemade garam masala is the spice crown jewel of East Indian cuisine and absolutely makes curries SING. This spice blend uses easy-to-find ingredients & mixes up in less than 5 minutes.

If you make curries very often, I'm sure you've run across the spice blend called garam masala.

It's savory, sweet, and just a bit spicy – just right for a comforting curry.

However, both because I want to demystify what's in garam masala and because I want to show you how easy it is to make at home in case it's difficult to find a good quality source of garam masala where you live, today I'm posting our recipe for homemade garam masala.

Besides, it's easy, it's cheaper, and it takes less than five minutes, so like most spice blends, it's just plain smart to make your own! 🙂

Happy cooking and happy curries!

    Ahhh… thanks Kresha! I just recently started liking Indian food. Have you tried samosas? Delicious! This recipe will come in handy as I have been trying to make a lot of my own spice blends and condiments lately. It really is cheaper!
