What is Garam Masala?
Garam masala spice powder is a mix of beautiful ingredients that are commonly used in Indian cuisine. Both lentil dishes and curries are blessed with aromatic flavours and taste. Cinnamon, peppercorns, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and cardamom are combined along with many other ingredients. Unlike the name for this mix appropriately translates to ‘hot spice’ but it is not hot really. It may warm the body, and speed up the metabolism for a healthy living.
What Does Garam Masala Powder Taste Like?
Garam masala spice powder is one of the most popular seasonings in India and around the world. Its taste changes from region to region with different recipes depending on location and culture. Typically, the powder will be sweet from cinnamon, tangy with coriander, fragrant from cardamom, spicy with the heat from peppercorns, and a strong earthiness from cumin. In Northern India, you can expect to see an aromatic, mild garam masala powder, and the further south you head the hotter it will get.
