Garam Masala

A community recipe by

Somehow the store-bought garam masala don't appeal to me as much as the aroma of the freshly groung spices do. And many a times I don't get good authentic garam masala in the shops. I find it adultered by a lot of other spices like black pepper, cumin, coriander and such. So, when I need it, this s how I make it.


Serves: a pot

  • 1 nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons green cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons cloves
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
  • 2 black cardamom
  • 1 mace (whole flower)
