My Kitchen’s Gastronomic Tool: Bengali Garam Masala or Gorom Moshla

It just so happens that every family has its own Bengali Garam Masala powder recipe. Mine is a bit more inclined towards Shahi Gorom Moshla or Shahi Garam Masala powder recipe. A couple of additional ingredients give this spice mix recipe an edge over others.
