Bengali Garam Masala Powder

Typically ,the Bengali Garam Masala consists of a very few ingredients.It is made up of only Cinnamon,cardamom(green),and cloves.I make this every fifteen days and store them in air tight bottles .If made in a bigger quantity they start losing their beautiful aroma.

The three are not taken in equal ratios.I generally go high on the cinnamon,and low on the cloves,since  more cloves can bring a pungent taste.

Microwave them for 1 minute.

Let them cool down.

Grind them as fine as possible

Ready to be stored in air tight containers.

Note-Do not strain out the cardamom peels as they add to the flavour.For best results,this powder should be added at the end of the preparation ,just before switching off the flame.
