Garam masala spice

Garam masala is a blend of spices commonly used in Indian and South Asian cuisines. There is no single recipe for garam masala. Different regions use different blends and in Indian households, garam masala is considered a very personal recipe. Common spices used to make garam masala include coriander, cumin, cardamom, mustard seeds, bay leaves, fennel, fenugreek, caraway, black and white peppercorns, cloves, mace, nutmeg and cinnamon. Traditionally, the seeds and spices are toasted, ground and then mixed together but in a pinch, you can just mix ground spices together.
