I have been asked why my meat dishes have this amazing aroma and flavour and its all due to the garam masala which i make at home myself. Garam masala is a blend of many spices and depending on the state of india they are also made with certain specific spices. I am using my mothers recipe and this is the way it used to be made in my home. The mutton my dad cooked was famous amongst all his friends.. Do i buy readymade garam masala?? No way!!! I also do sell a garam masala with my own brand Nitu Didi which is also good…but frankly id rather go through the effort of making my very own. I know of a few people who are going to be very happy with my video tutorial!!
6-8 bay leaves
4 tablespoons of coriander seeds
2 tablespoons of cumin seeds
4 big brown cardamoms
6 small sticks of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of cloves
40 green cardamoms ( yes you read right!!)
roast the spices till heated in a pan. Cool it a bit and while still warm blend it in the blender little by little till its well blended to the texture you like
Voila!! You have the most amazing tasting garam masala ala Nitu Didi!!!
