EASY 5-ingredient Homemade Garam Masala Recipe to make authentic Indian food at home!
Course: Spice Blend
Cuisine: Indian
Keyword: garam masala
Servings: 10 OZ
Author: Archana Mundhe
  • 2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon cloves
  • 1 tablespoon crushed Cinnamon sticks
  • 0.75 tablespoon cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon shahjira/black cumin seeds
  1. Lightly roast each spice in a small pan until they get hot, about a minute. Stir frequently. Make sure not to burn them by roasting them too long. The goal is to make them a bit toasty so they are easy to grind.
  2. Cool spices and then grind fine in a coffee or spice grinder. Store in an airtight container away from direct sunlight.
