Garam masala is a blend of all aromatic Indian spices like coriander, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom....  which can be used in many other recipes to add flavor and taste especially in non veg recipes like chicken curry, mutton curry, prawns curry and even good for making Biryani. This can be made easily at home and tastes several times better than store bought Garam masala.
Homemade fresh garam masala adds unique flavor and taste to the recipes.
