I had a recipe that was using Garam Marsala and the stuff I had on hand had little or no smell, so I though to look and see if I could find a recipe on Zaar. Suprised me!! As it is not a spice I use often, I didn't want to make up a gazillion amount, so this recipe did appeal to me. I cut the recipe in half and it worked out wonderful for me. I didn't have the nutmeg, so I added a pinch or two of the powder. Thanks Honeybeee for the contribution!!!
