Garam Masala

Garam masala is a spice mix that’s a staple in Punjabi-Indian dishes. This recipe, which I got from my mother, is my secret ingredient in homemade guacamole.

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients together in a mortar or coffee grinder. Blend until the mixture becomes a powder. Run through a sieve to remove any large bits.
  2. Store in an airtight container, away from direct heat (if stored correctly, it will not go bad). The spices can also be pre-toasted in a dry saucepan before blending for a smokier flavour.
