I was in need of more Garam Masala than I had on hand so I made this blend. Much more flavourful than the commercial blend I have used in the past. It would have been a breeze to put together except that I only had cardamon pods so toasting and then spliiting them to remove the seeds took an extra few minutes. So worth it! Made for CQ4
