Organic Garam Masala 150g Bag Steenbergs details and description
Steenbergs Organic Garam Masala is a classic rendition of this staple Indian spice blend. Garam masala is a traditional Indian blend of spices that is one of the basic spice mixes of Indian cookery. Every household and region has their own versions of garam masala. According to Ayurvedic texts only those spices that heat the body should be used, e.g. black cardamom , black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, black cumin, mace, cloves and bay leaves, since these are the hot spices or garam masala spices. This organic garam masala is packed in Steenbergs distinctive resealable black pouches.
Steenbergs Organic Garam Masala is almost a sweet blend based around Punjabi recipes that lacks the characteristic "curry" notes of cumin , coriander and turmeric , making it a very versatile organic curry/spice blend. Steenbergs Organic Garam Masala comprises the sweet spice - cinnamon - and the pungent spices - caraway, cloves and cardamom powder. At Steenbergs we add some wonderful organic black pepper from organic growers in the Palghat region of Kerala in India to give it some bite. Then Axel Steenberg has used organic fennel seeds to bring the flavours together and add some anise tones to the blend. For more information on garam masala, try Wikipedia.
Steenbergs Organic Garam Masala is hand blended in small batches by Steenbergs Organic at Steenbergs spice godown in North Yorkshire.

Packaging note: This is in our new certified plastic free white packaging which is fully compostable and recyclable. Some of the products, particularly ground spices may leak some of their essential oils through the bags. This does not impact the spices and is not a problem but may look a little different to what you may expect from plastic. We would also recommend that once opened you decant the spices into an airtight container. If you don’t like this new plastic free packaging, please order in glass jars (which are reusable and recyclable).
