  • Heat the skillet. It should be hot enough to roast the spices but be careful to not burn them. Dry roast all these ingredients individually - Cumin Seeds, Cardamom Seeds, Coriander Seeds, Peppercorns, Cinnamon, Cloves, Bay Leaves and broken Nutmeg. All these spices together give Garam Masala powder a very strong flavour with a slightly warming, sweet, pungent to taste. Keep stirring at regular intervals. Allow them to cool. To remove the Cardamom husk, put the roasted cardamom in between a paper towel. Press it with a rolling pin lightly. Throw away the green skin and use the small cardamon pods. Once all the spices have cooled down, using a grinder, grind it all to a fine powder. Garam Masala is ready to be used. Enjoy its flavors in any dish knowing very well that it is authentic since it is homemade with love! This can be made in advance and stored in a airtight container for months.
