Garam Masala has a wide variety of uses & is a kitchen cupboard essential for South Asian cuisine. A fragrant, warming aromatic blend of Spices that add a delicious layering of flavour to your cooking. Used as a base in many Indian dishes. Add to Curries, Soups, Meat & Vegetable dishes. It can also be used as a finishing spice, added near the end of cooking to season your dish. All of the spices in our blend complement each other, giving you a tasty, aromatic result every time.
Did you know that Garam masala loosely translates to “warm spice”? The word Garam means “heat” but this doesn’t mean that the spices in our blend are hot, but that they have a warming, heating effect on the body when eaten & the word Masala means “spice”!
Why not make your own curried beans? Simply fry off some finely chopped onion, add garam masala to your taste, pour in a tin of baked beans & add a few sultanas. Simmer over a low heat until cooked, use to top a jacket potato or serve as part of a main meal.
