Kashmiri Garam Masala

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by auntchelle

I use this in my Rogan Josh (Kashmiri Lamb Curry). Use the freshest spices you can source. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry & dark place. I've guessed the timing - bashing those cardamom pods varies each time! Australian measurements used.

Very good! I wasn't content with store bought garam masala for recipe #358588 so looked for a home made alternative, and this was it!! Thanks for posting!
