Garam Masala, which means ‘warming spice’ in Hindi language, is common in North Indian and other South Asian cuisines. It is used interchangeably with curry and is usually composed of coriander, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, and fennel. Curry may contain as many as twenty different spices including those mentioned here.
