Garam Masala is a blend of sweet and warm spices commonly used in Indian cuisine. Every Indian cook seems to have their own secret blend and not everyone will agree on the perfect combination. Our Garam Masala is a well-balanced mixture of warming, aromatic spices that are not too hot or too sweet. It is an indispensable blend for any professional or home kitchen where curries, kabobs, or savory Chicken Tikka Masala are regular offerings. Consider it the perfect base to which spicier or sweeter ingredients can be added depending on your personal preferences of the specific dish.
Some of the spices in Garam Masala have had a recent boost in popularity thanks to their health benefits. Cloves, turmeric, cinnamon and cardamom – to name a few – may help balance blood sugar levels and fight inflammation. To enjoy the most health benefits, and the most flavor, add it to your dish at the very end of cooking after the heat is already off. Long exposure to heat can dull the delicious taste and aromas of the exotic ingredients. Use it in its powdered form or mixed into vinegar, coconut milk, or water to create a paste.
