Garam Masala Powder Recipe|Easy And Quick

What is Garam masala powder?
     Garam masala is a Indian spice mix prepared by dry roasting or sun drying many of the spices and ground to powder.This garam masala plays a major role in most north Indian sabzi's and curry even parathas.Making own garam masala powder is not very fancy.My mom usually makes chili powder,coriander powder,masala powder,sambhar powder.I never attempted to make these powders at home.I make Idli milagai podi at home  other than that i prepare bisibelabath with fresh bisibelabath powder and make pepper,jeera powder for rasams and omelette's.

     Now a days because of eating more north Indian curries or because of  love of garam masala i finished a whole packet of store bought garam masala powder.I wanted to prepare garam masala at home for a long time.I saw this garam masala recipe in sanjeev kappor's cook book.I was just amazed its that easy ? But i was little skeptical because i skip black cardamom and mace in the masalas,so i halfed the recipe and made it in a small batch.I haven't tasted the masala in curries but sure the masala smells great and more aromatic, flavourful than store bought garam masala powder.
  If you have black cardamoms and mace you can try adding them like 5 each.Now off to the recipe how to make garam masala powder.
