Smoked Garam Masala

Smoked Garam Masala

Garam Masala is an essential Indian spice mix that has a warmth and richness to it that gives Indian food its unique taste. Every family will have its own recipe for garam masala and some guard it carefully.  You can buy it from the grocery store but it’s usually more cumin and coriander powder than cardamom and cinnamon, which give garam masala its aromatic but earthy flavour.  My recipe is a smoked version to give a little more life to the flavour, but you can go straight to grinding, if you prefer.  It’s a lot more effort than buying a packet, but well worth it, especially if you buy your spices in bulk, like I do 🙂

Enjoy!
