How to make Garam Masala @ home

Ever since I started my blog, several people have asked me the mix for Gram Masala. I have never used garam masala in packets, but always made my own. II also make Sambar Powder and chutney powder at home. Check how to make Sambar Powder and Veppilakkatti at home. Mummy was particular about the same and so am I. The flavour, aroma, and content is important. I arrange all the whole spices in a plate and microwave for a minute and then grind it to fine powder. You need to store it in airtight container in order to preserve the flavour and aroma. This Garam Masala Powder can be used for all my recipes with Garam Masala content. Here are my ingredients for the special Garam Masala @ meemiskitchen


Cardamom: 25 nos (peeled)
Cloves: 30 nos
Cinnamon: 10 sticks
Perumjeerah (Fennelseed/ Saumph): 2 tsp
Star Anise: 1-2 nos.


Peel the cardamom and take the seeds. Arrange the spices in a plate and microwave for 1 minute (Or heat it in a frying pan). Grind in a dry spice grinder till fine powder. Store in an airtight container.
