Goan Garam Masala

I would love to share the Goan version of Garam Masala or the curry masala used in most of my savory dishes. The recipe is passed to me by my mother.


Recipe :

Ingredients :

  • 200 gms coriander seeds
  • 2 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp cloves
  • 10 Kashmiri red chillies (These are used only to give red color to the masala and does not enhance or give any spicy taste)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds*
  • 1 nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp star anise
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds*
  • 2 long sticks of turmeric
  • 1 tbsp metal mace*

Method :

  1. Dry roast all the spices one by one and keep them aside to cool.
  2. Please remember to roast the spices marked with (*) at the last.
  3. Roast all on medium-low flame.
  4. Once they cool down, grind them to a fine powder in a mixer-blender or a coffee/spice blender.
