Garam Masala is a blend of ground spices used extensively in Indian/Pakistani cuisines. The spices for garam masala are usually toasted to bring out more flavor and aroma, and then ground. The word masala simply means "spices," and garam means "hot." Thus the term garam masala literally translates to "hot spices." However, garam masala doesn't necessarily constitute a particularly spicy blend.

Today I am gonna share Basic Garam Masala, Several types of garam masala are available in the market, but the selling product of different brands is zafrani garam masala.

This type of garam masala may be the best choice for Korma, biryani, and karahi but in the other types of dishes it doesn’t work at all so I thought I share my own garam masala version that is even easier and quick
