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

If you have been following my recipes then you would see Bengali Garam Masala powder is probably the most used spice. This all-spice mix is almost like my own secret weapon to delicious and tasty dishes. And making this spice- mix at home is almost a child’s play.

It just so happens that every family has its own Bengali Garam Masala 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.

Actually, this post doesn’t even need a definitive recipe because there isn’t one! It is just so simple to make your own jar of Bengali Garam Masala powder within a few minutes. It’s one of those DIY recipes that I often do at my end, rather than just buying them off the supermarket shelves.

Another recipe that I have live on this recipe blog is DIY Chili Sauce recipe that needs just 3 simple ingredients.  

However, just so you can save and print the recipe for your later use, I will give it in a recipe format. 

Some of the recipes where I have used this Bengali Garam Masala or Gorom Moshla are these:

This all-spice mix recipe is completely Gluten-free and Vegan. It uses organic whole spices and mixes them into a fragrant spice-mix so perfect for all sorts of Indian as well as Asian curries. 

Have you tried this recipe? I would love to hear about it.
