Lovely smell wafting through the kitchen as I toasted the spice blend and smells absolutely authentic. Sprinkled a bit on my eggs this morning and will enjoy experimenting with it more. Thanks.
A wonderful spice blend. Thanks!
What an aromatic blend! I'm so glad I made this and look forward to using it on many occasions! I didn't have black cardamom, but otherwise did as directed. Thanks! Made for Looney Spoon Phoodies, ZWT#6.
I only had green cardamom, and regular cumin seeds, but otherwise I made this as posted. Heating it all in the skillet instead of just grinding the spices up really made the kitchen smell wonderful! I used this in my Garam Masala Chicken. Thanks so much for sharing!
I love to have spice blends to use in my recipes and this one was great! When I mixed this up the kitchen smelled so wonderful. Made exactly as listed. ZWT6
This spice blend has a pungent aroma. I did not use the optional black cardamom and used regular cumin seeds and no fenugreek seeds as I didn't have any. I used a bit of allspice to replace the nutmeg as we don't use it because of it's intoxicant properties. I used this in Yakni Pilau (Chicken Rice). Which was delicious. Made for India -- More Than Just Curries Tag Game -- March 2010.
Excellent aroma wafting in my kitchen when I was making this recipe. I used the Garam Masala quite a bit in my cooking and I used the recipe with Indian Butter Chicken. The chicken dish still tasted delicious and almost the same as the first time I made it. So it was very close blend to the real thing. I didn't use the black cardamom pods because I couldn't find it but otherwise I kept to the recipe. Thank you once again French Tart
