Indian Garam Masala

Indian Garam Masala

Preservative Free and Gluten Free $ 10.00

In Hindi, “masala” refers to a mixture of spices, while “garam” conveys warmth. Thus, Garam Masala is a warm blend of spices. Our interpretation of this traditional blend is most closely associated with the Punjab region of Northern India. We start by mixing Green Cardamom, Coriander, Cumin, Peppercorn, Bay Leaf, Star Anise, Nigella, Clove, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon stick to create this truly authentic spice blend. 

Size: 1.8 oz

  • Ingredients

    Handcrafted from Coriander, Cumin, Green Cardamom, Korintje Cinnamon, Black Peppercorn, Nutmeg, Clove, Nigella Seed, Star Anise, and Bay Leaf.
