Randall Hauk says:
THANK YOU! I thought I still had some when I started making dinner, discovered I was out, and was saved by this recipe. I've used others, but this is as good as any.
Aja A says:
I always have garam masala on hand as it's one of my top spices to use. I make paneer tikka masala and I like rub the cheese with this before I grill it or toss it in the sauce. Definitely agree to mix it with yogurt to marinade chicken or shrimp. You won't be disappointed.
