Ever since I discovered it is much cheaper to make my own spice mixes, and Market Spice in Seattle is a great place to get bulk spices, I have been trying different Garam Masalas. There are almost as many recipes as there are chefs :) This one is one of the best I have tried. It is the first one I have found with nutmeg. Was great in a lentil dish. Very nice blend, and mild enough for those who do not like "spicy"! Will be making this often. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
