Garam Masala is the Indian equivalent of French herbes de Provence or Chinese five-spice powder. The recipe changes from region to region within northern India and can be varied according to preference. Garam Masala is actually one of the only spice *blends* used in authentic Indian cooking. Did you know that the ubiquitous 'curry powder' that most people associate with Indian food is not Indian at all? It’s actually a western version of Garam Masala.
Garam is Indian for "warm" or "hot," and this blend of dry-roasted, ground spices from the colder climates of northern India adds a sense of "warmth" to the palate.
Ground Garam Masala is only added with a gentle hand at the last step of cooking, almost like a fresh herb, because it tends to become bitter if cooked too long.
