A vat of homemade Garam Masala is an essential component to your Indian spice blend kit. Of course you could buy a pre-made but as ever, homemade always tastes better. Garam Masala blends vary from Indian household to household; you’ll soon get a taste for which spices you prefer in your dishes so feel free to experiment.
The flavour profile of Garam Masala is aromatic and warming, it has a tiny bit of heat but is more fragrant in flavour. Garam Masala is used as a base in so many Indian dishes so is really worth experimenting with and dealing in your own perfect blend. Try mine to begin with, I’ve experimented a lot to get (my ideal) proportions of spices.
