This is a really great Garam Masala spice mix that my cook gave me when I lived in India. It's wonderful when making Indian food.

How to Make Garam Masala (Indian spice mix)


  • 1Mix all spices together in a small bowl
    Transfer to an airtight bottle/container for storage
    Store in a cool dark place
    Use in curries, dal, chickpea/choly dishes...any Indian recipe that calls for Garam Masala
  • 2If you don't have ground spices, you can put everything into a coffee grinder or break everything down with a mortar and pestal.
  • 3REMINDER...if you use a coffee grinder, don't use the one you grind your coffee with as you will not want to use it to grind coffee again; unless you like Garam Masala flavored coffee.
