chana, malai kofta and so on.
in english garam means warm and masala means a blend of spices. so the words
garam masala translates to a warm spice blend . the coining of these two words is true
as the spices that are used in making the garam masala make the body warm. they also
have medicinal as well as digestive properties.

a few weeks back i received a request from a dear reader for punjabi garam masala.
even before the request came i was thinking of making the garam masala and post about
it too. the garam masala which my mother had made and given to me is on the verge of
getting over.
so i had no option but to make a fresh batch of garam masala. this punjabi garam masala
is my mom in laws recipe. every punjabi home have their own garam masala recipe.
when we make the garam masala, we dont roast the spices. we just sun dry them and

then powder the spices. roasting the spices, will make your garam masala more
aromatic than this one. if you want you can lightly dry roast the spices instead of sun
drying them. but dont roast the dry ginger and black cardamoms.

garam masala recipe, how to make punjabi garam masala powder at home

i added a dash of garam masala to the palak pakoras and the masala rice i had made a
few days ago and wow what pakoras and masala rice were they. thats the power of a
homemade garam masala or for that matter any homemade masala or spice blend mix.
dont ever ever buy readymade garam masala. they are horrible and adulterated too. more
about adulteration on my coriander powder post here.
whatever masala or powder you use in your food, make them at home. be it bisi bele
bath masala, sambar powder, rasam powder or even chai masala powder. i usually add
1/4 teaspoon garam masala in the dals, sabzis or curries i make for a servings of 2-3. the
homemade garam masala powder is so strong that you should not add too much of
garam masala in your dishes. it will spoil the taste of the whole food. just a little does the
job and balances the aroma, taste and flavors in the food very well.

2: keep the plate with the whole spices in sunlight for 2-3 days. turn over the spices
sometimes when they are getting the sun light.

3: in a very good dry grinder or coffee grinder, first grind the dry ginger. dry
ginger/saunth is the toughest to grind. so i always grind it first. you can also use ginger
powder instead of dry whole ginger. you can still see a small bit of dry ginger still left after
grinding.
