Garam -masala- recipe
Homemade garam masala , though i have heard from many of my friends that it smells so aromatic than the store bought garam masala. I have never tried on my own until recently i got a recipe of garam masala from my friend's mother in law.  when i tried it at home, it turned out so aromatic and i am sure i will never go back to store bought garam masala again. Go ahead to make your own garam masala and make the dish more flavourful.
