I received so many messages and requests to share my homemade garam masala recipe,and finally here I'm with my version of homemade garam masala. Garam masala powders plays an key roll in many Indian dishes right. They gives an extra taste and aroma to our dishes.though there are lots of brands available in market  I always  prefer homemade garam masala, So I always prepare a batch of garam masala powder at and store in airtight container.  You just sprinkle some of this garam masala powder to your dishes and see the magic.

I always use rough measurements to make my garam masala , I take equal quantities of cinnamon sticks and cloves approx 8 to 10 cardamoms and other ingredients are 2 pieces for each ingredient. But some how today I managed to give you cinnamon and cloves measurements . You just use 1/2 to 1 tea spoon of garam masala in your dishes because homemade garam masala gives a very strong and aromatic flavours. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you. (this is my version of making garam masala so don't compare with others recipe)
