Garam Masala

Garam Masala is a spice used in Indian cooking. There are lots of ways to make this.  Below is a quick and easy way.  I suggest using whole spices, roast for 1 - 2 minutes, then grind.  I use whole nutmeg and grate. Mix according to the proportions below. Place mix in an airtight container, and store in a cool, dry place.


  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Some interesting uses:
  1. Add with a little sugar and black tea, makes a great, quick Chai beverage! 
  2. Use this on oatmeal (surprisingly good) 
  3. Chicken thigh marinade by mixing into yogurt and seasoning with salt.
