Garam Masala is a blend of sweet and warm spices commonly used in Indian cuisine. Every Indian cook seems to have their own secret blend and not everyone will agree on the perfect combination. Mount Hope’s wholesale Garam Masala is a well-balanced mixture of warming, aromatic spices that’s not too hot or too sweet. It is an indispensable blend for any professional or home kitchen where curries, kabobs or savory Chicken Tikka Masala are regular offerings. Consider it the perfect base to which spicier or sweeter ingredients can be added depending on your personal preferences of the specific dish.
Its reputation as a “hot” flavoring is a little misleading and shouldn’t limit your use of this spice blend strictly to Indian cooking. The most commonly used spices in Garam Masala are considered warming to the body, helping you to heat up from the inside, but are not especially hot to the taste. The sweet-savory balance of Mount Hope bulk Garam Masala will add depth of flavor to all types of poultry and meat dishes as well as soups and stews.
Some of the spices in Garam Masala have had a recent boost in popularity thanks to their health benefits. Cloves, turmeric, cinnamon and cardamom – to name a few – may help balance blood sugar levels and fight inflammation. To enjoy the most health benefits, and the most flavor, from our bulk spice blend, add it to your dish at the very end of cooking after the heat is already off. Long exposure to heat can dull the delicious taste and aromas of the exotic ingredients. Use it in its powdered form or mixed into vinegar, coconut milk or water to create a paste.
