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.

Somehow I love the taste and flavour of home made garam masalas rather than the store bought ones. So here goes my recipe.
