What is it?
It’s a blend of ground spices used widely in Indian cuisine. The word masala simply means “spices,” and garam means “hot.” Thus the term translates to “hot spices.” However, it doesn’t necessarily constitute a particularly spicy blend.
How to make it?
It’s as simple as 1,2,3! All you do is gently dry fry the whole spices for 5 minutes and then blitz up in a coffee machine, spice blender or food processor.
What ingredients to use?
Every region of India has its own versions. According to Ayurvedic texts, only those spices that heat the body should be used, e.g. cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, cloves and fennel.
Get creative with your own style of Indian spice mix.
