  3. Garam Masala is one of the most important ingredients for Indian dishes. We are lucky to get sunshine, so always dry in sunlight gives better results than roasting.
    I like the last pic…
    Have a nice day!

  27. I should really try making my own sometime. I know it's not complicated, but for some reason I always buy this blend - don't ask me why. I know when I buy it that it's already old, and this is something that really much better when it's fresh. Thanks for the inspiration!
