Authentic Northern Indian garam masala. While each family seems to have their own personal blend, the ones I've seen on Zaar are highly questionable, so I felt the need to post my own. This is in the Punjabi style as taught to me by the owner of a Pakistani restaurant. All spices are whole unless otherwise specified and can be found at your local Indian market.

Directions

  1. Grind all spices together in a spice mill (or at least a coffee grinder). Make sure to use ground turmeric as, in its whole form, it's hard like a rock (literally).

Excellent Punjabi Garam Masala, far better than other blends I've tried so far. I couldn't find whole black cardamom pods, so I used ground ones, but I don't think that it will affect the end result. Used this for lamb, and the taste was fantastic. Thanks for posting this winner! Made for PAC fall 2009.
