Homemade Indian Spices
Garam Masala is the Indian equivalent of French herbs de Provence or Chinese five-spice powder. Traditionally, South African Indian recipes call for garam masala, a blend of seven spices, cumin, coriander, cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
Do not assume that these Indian spices are hard to find, most are to be found in your local supermarkets, and if you cannot find them there, visit the local Indian grocery store.
Garam masala is a strong spice mixture and is the heart of most Indian dishes.
