We have used so many masalas all these years, both branded and also homemade but for me this garam masala beats them all. The branded ones are average, homemade ones are great but this one totally impressed me. Whether for vegetables or for chicken dishes, it’s just makes them very tasty. My wife whose cooking is average has suddenly turned into a fairly good cook thanks to this garam masala. Please note that since this masala is quite strong, it is advisable to use little less in your preparations.
