Garam masala, which means hot spice, is the Indian equivalent of the French herbes de Provence or the Chinese five spice powder. The recipe changes from region to region in northern India, with each household adding its own touch. As a rule, garam masala is added at the last step of cooking, almost like a fresh herb. If cooked too long, it tends to become bitter. Garam masala is available on some grocery store spice racks as well as in Indian markets, but for the best flavor, toast and grind your own.
