About Garam Masala Organic
The word garam means warm in Hindi while masala means spice mix, making garam masala a warming spice mix. This easy-to-make spice blend is the heart of most Indian dishes. A combination of different whole spices, it probably has as many recipe variations as there are families in India. The spices contained in this blend are usually toasted to bring out more flavor and aroma, and then ground.
Garam masala is believed to have originated in Northern Indian cuisine, where it is especially found in traditional Mughal dishes.
In Ayurvedic medicine, the spices in this blend are warming, meaning that they increase the metabolism (rather than being hot in flavor).

How to use
Garam masala adds warmth, sweetness, floral notes, and a touch of heat from the black pepper. It is intended to be a fragrant spice as well as flavorful. While cumin, coriander, and turmeric may remind you of curry, garam masala is generally not spicy hot. It is usually added near the end of cooking so that it not only seasons the dish but adds to the aroma. Some additional garam masala may also be sprinkled on top of the dish.
