Garam Masala is an Indian spice found in specialty food stores or it can be made by grinding together the following spices.
- 5 teaspoons coriander seeds
- 1 tablespoon cumin seed
- 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon green cardamom pods
- Mix together.
There seem to be as many variations on garam masala as there are cooks! And I like to try different ones out. This one is quite good. I had to sub the equivalent of ground coriander for the seed, as I only had the ground. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
The aroma from this was fab...I toasted all but the cinnamon in a dry frypan then ground up all the ingredients in a coffee grinder. I used the seeds from 3 cardamon pods.
