Punjabi Garam Masala Recipe - How to make garam masala powder

Punjabi Garam Masala Powder

Garam Masala Powder is a blend of Indian Spices which can stored and used in cooking.From the day I started making garam masala powder at home, I have never bought garam masala powder from shops, once or twice is a exception when I needed it in the rush hour.So when my batch of garam masala got over this time, I wanted to try a different version and chanced to see this punjabi version so immediately tried it and stored it.It is so flavourful and aromatic, I have already started using it in my cooking :)

The punjabi version has more pepper and jeera so the garam masala powder has a darker shade but very aromatic.

My Notes:

  • Slow roast all the ingredients, do not burn them.
  • You can even sieve them and store.
  • It keeps well for even a yr.Keep it refrigerated after 3months.
