We have enjoyed the combination of spices known as ‘garam masala’ since childhood. This mixture of exotic spices is usually used more in winter for its warming qualities, since it raises the body temperature. The amount of spice in the masala can be controlled.

The garam masala is said to contain the 6 essential tastes for a perfectly balanced dish.

The heart of any dish depends on the spices used. The flavour is affected by the utensils used, preparation and cooking time, and also the aroma and flavour of the mixture of spices.

While dried masala may be stored in an airtight container for use for several months.
