Garam Masala

Definition: Garam Masala


Garam Masala
A spice blend common in Indian cooking. The word garam means warm or hot, and these dry-roasted ground spices add warmth and heat to a dish. Though the spices in the mixture vary from cook to cook, garam masala may include coriander, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, cumin, cardamon, dried chiles, fennel, nutmeg, or mace. The blend can be found in Indian markets or at most specialty grocery stores.

I love to add a pinch of this to any curry dishes, gives it a distinct flavor. But too much of it makes the back of my throat burn.
