Interesting Fact: Did you know that garam masala is usually added at the end of the dishes cooking time and is also used in Indian cuisine as a seasoning in the way that we use salt and pepper? Adding the spice blend at the end of the cooking time allows the flavours to be stronger and more vibrant, adding at the start of the dishes cooking time will result in the spice blend mellowing and having a subtler effect at flavouring the dish. Garam masala loosely translates to ‘warm spice’? The word ‘garam’ means ‘heat’ but this doesn’t indicate that the spices contained in the blend are hot, but that they have a warming/heating effect on the body when eaten, masala means ‘spice’.
