I have made this but not used it yet. I can tell its a great garam masala..the smell is wonderful. I had to use just green cardamoms since I cannot get hold of the black ones.
The roasting smell of these spices is intoxicating. I did not use black cardamom as I didnt have any. I also did not use nutmeg because of its intoxicant properties, instead I added a bit of allspice. I used this in Yakni Pilau (Chicken Rice) and it was good. I will find some other recipes to use this again.
This is so beautiful when cooking...it smelled great and looked so pretty (before grinding)...can't wait to use it!!!
The aroma from this spice mix is amazing! I did not have black cardamom and only used 5 cloves. Thanks Rita for a neat recipe!
Thanks Rita for a do it yourself spice mix to replace one I buy.
