Home made garam masala

     I usually buy a variety of garam masalas (Indian spices) and use them alternatively for a different taste.For instance , I like to use subji masala ,goda masala or kitchen king masala for different dry vegetable curries or maybe tandoori masala for paneer or tofu based gravies. And lately I have started making my own garam masala adding my touch and it really goes well with many dishes. Somehow I love the taste and flavour of home made garam masalas rather than the store bought ones. So here goes my recipe.

Recipe Notes

In case the ingredients are not freshly bought,and you have been storing it for quite sometime in your kitchen pantry, then toast them lightly in a pan before grinding them.
