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.

    • If you are living in a place where you can keep the whole garam masalas under sunlight then dry it in bright sunlight for 5-6 hours. Else dry roast them in a pan for 3-4 minutes. Do not make it burnt. Just keep in medium flame till  all the whole spices are warm when u touch it.
