Indian spices are so flavorful and with them you can create so many delicious vegan recipes.
Garam masala is a blend of ground spices used extensively in Indian cuisine. The spices for garam masala are usually toasted to bring out more flavor and aroma, and then ground. The word masala simply means "spices," and garam means "hot." However, garam masala doesn't necessarily constitute a particularly spicy blend.
Sometimes it is pretty hard to find it, but you can easily make it, just mixing up some spices from your pantry.
Here is the recipe:
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Step 1: In a small mixing bowl place all the ingredients and mix until combined.
Step 2: Transfer to a spice container.
