What is Garam Masala?

Taste: Warm, complex, mildly spicy
Most Popular Use: Curries, stir-fries, vegetables, dahls

Garam masala translates literally to "warm spice" in Hindi, the word masala simply means "spices," while garam means "hot." A staple of North Indian cooking, garam masala can be prepared literally thousands of ways and varies from chef to chef. Key spices include cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, cardamom, peppercorns & more.  

In North Indian cuisine, garam masala is typically used in powder form, while in the southern part of the country, garam masala is often formed into a paste with coconut milk, vinegar or water. The closer to the equator a population lives, the hotter the Indian spices & food tends to be. This is mainly due to the fact that chiles thrive in hotter climates, so Southern India garam masala blends tend to be hotter.

Garam masala is all about toasting whole spices first to help release their essentials oils, and then grinding to powder form in a grinder. Traditional garam masala should be purchased in small batches and then stored in a cool, dark spot in your kitchen pantry. 

Curry usually goes in early in the cooking process and tends to be more turmeric based, vs garam masala, which is meant to be added midway or near the end of the cooking process. Garam masala is more aromatic than curry powder, too. 

Garam Masala Recipes & Cooking Tips

Garam masala pairs well with Indian-inspired dishes like chicken tikka masala, curries, braised vegetables or dahls. Make it easy and rub onto sweet potato wedges or whip up an easy garam masala sauce. Or change it up to add unexpected flavor to desserts like pumpkin pie or chocolate truffles. Whether you’re a purist who only eats whole foods, a foodie looking for new ideas, or a busy on-the-go professional, there’s a garam masala recipe on this list for everyone.

Using new ingredients we've never heard of before Keto, and loving it!!

Product gave our foods an amazing flavor. Before starting our Keto diet, we had never heard of some of the ingredients we're now using. Other than the time it took to be delivered, I have no complaints. Shipping was extremely slow.

Spiced up MEATLOAF

Such a wonderful taste, adding spices that are different from my same old meatloaf to tomato sauce for the wonderful blend of spice. This gave it a flavor to savor !

I am enjoying the aroma of the blends just sitting on my spice rack and stove. Now to try some new recipes !

MMMMM!

MMMMM! Love, love LOVE them smell when it arrives! All Garam Masala's are a bit different based on the recipe. I truly like this one, but more importantly it is so wonderful to actually smell and taste the difference of freshly ground spices! I recommend making a curry paste with it shortly after you receive it, that way it is ready to use whenever you are ready to make a fast curry. It is a bit spicy though. Thanks Raw spice! Love the Chat Masala too!
