If you need a quick & easy garam masala, but can’t buy one at the store, or if you need a base recipe that you can adjust the spices to your needs, this is a good base to work from. I needed this because someone in my family has a cumin sensitivity. I don’t recommend skipping the cumin if you don’t need to!

If on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, Penzeys & McCormick have in the past verified that they don’t use processing aides/anti-caking agents not listed on the ingredients for their spices. Always good to check, as companies can change how they do things. I often grind whole spices.
