Home Made Garam Masala ( All Purpose Indian Spice Mix)
To me this is the quintessential spice for Indian cooking. The hues, depth and flavours vary regionally but for a meat lover in India this masala mix is a must. I don't use store bought garam masala. They taste weird to me. And besides stored for long garam masala does taste or smell mild so I powder my masala once in 3 weeks. We use this masala for all veg and non-veg preparations. This masala is very strong and dark brown in colour. I don't sieve it though it is suggested that you do.
