This homemade garam masala is easy to make and takes just a few minutes. It’s also gluten free, preservative free, and adaptable! Much better than buying readymade garam masala as you can have full control of the flavors!


  • 5 TBLS / 40g Cumin Seeds
  • 5 TBLS / 40g Cardamom Pods
  • 5 TBLS / 20g Whole Cloves
  • 67 pieces / 20g Cinnamon Sticks or Cassia Bark – roughly chopped/broken up into small pieces


  1. Blend everything together in a spice grinder or coffee grinder, while taking breaks in between to prevent the grinder from overheating, until a fine powder consistency is achieved. (You may have to do this in two batches if your grinder is on the smaller side). Mix to ensure there are no large unblended chunks.
  2. Store in an airtight jar in a cool dry area for up to six months.
