    I'm sorry to say, but this is NOT a good recipe. I've checked other recipes for this and they make much more sense. This recipe calls for copious amounts of clove and black pepper. These are both highly potent spices and would completely overpower any other ingredients. This isn't anything resembling garam masala. Rather, this is a hard slap to the taste buds. You really might seriously want to think about rebalancing this recipe. It's an insult to Indian cuisine.

    Excellent recipe. I ended up adding a tablespoon more cumin and half a tablespoon more coriander. The cloves are a little overwhelming, will adjust that next time. Great foundational recipe though. Thank you!

    Wow, great recipe! I also needed some garam masala, was all out of the store bought mix. However, I did have all the ingredients! This turned out so well, and was so easy. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

    Just what I needed when I realised that I didn't have any in the house and was in the middle of preparing a recipe! The warm spices are perfect because the vegetable puffs (http://www.recipezaar.com/Vegetable-Puffs-8743) are for kids. Thank you very much for posting - you saved me a heap of time because I avoided a trip to the supermarket!
