Day 23: Garam Masala: 31 Days of Simple Recipes with Neelu

by - October 26, 2011

Woah, its 26th of October and I'am three days behind with my 31 days series! I've been such a lazy bum lately! heee B-)

Today, I'am going to share a very very simple recipe - a recipe for Garam Masala.

Garam Masala, as most of you would already know, is a mixture of hot spices that is required/used in almost all Indian recipes. Those of you who already know how to make garam masala - please don't smirk! :P There are many out there who would love to learn to make this spice blend themselves. 

What I normally do (being as lazy as I'am), I would buy a pack of whole garam masala from a local super market. Pick out all the bay leaves and dry roast the rest of the ingredients. Just for a minute. Take it off the heat immidiately and transfer it to a plate or aluminium foil. Let it cool for few minutes and the grind it in my coffee grinder. Store it an airtight container in a dark cool place. If carefully stored, you can use this spice blend for

You could grind the whole garam masala without roasting it. I personally prefer the roasted version. :)

PS. Sorry for such dull photos, it's past 8pm here and my camera just wouldn't focus without flash!
