garam-masala-powder-recipe
I have never thought before on making my own garam masala. But things changed when I saw this recipe in a library book I borrowed, it was so simple to try. And I tried. I am glad that I tried. Because now a days a lot more aroma in my dishes. I am not sure about the recipe if it is authentic, but I can assure you, this smells great and if added in place of store bought masala, it does a magicHappy.  From a home where they say No to  garam masala, to making my own garam masala powder at home now  Big Grin

Garam masala powder recipe

Indian Spice powder
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Makes: 1 cup approx

Ingredients

Coriander seeds  1/4 cup 
Elachi/ cardamom  2 tblsp 
pepper  2 tblsp 
Cloves  2 tblsp 
Fennel seeds  1 tblsp 
Star anise  3 - 4 
Cinnamon  4 sticks (1 inch) 
Nutmeg  a quarter or half 
Bay leaves  2 

Method

  1. Gather all the ingredients. Dry roast over medium flame with constant stirring to ensure even roasting.1-garam
  2. Cool down and powder it well in a mixer.2-garam
  3. Sieve it through a big metal strainer to make sure to eliminate any big pieces.3-garam

Notes

  • The colour depends upon the ingredients colour you use. But since we do not use red chilli in this, the colour will be on brown shade.
  • Since the flavours are string, we may need only less in places where we use the store bought ones.
                   Store in an airtight container and use it for all your garam masala needs in your kitchen.
