Directions

  • 1 Heat ungreased 6-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Place all garam masaala ingredients in skillet; roast 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until seeds crackle, spices turn one shade darker and the mixture has a nutty, sweet aroma. Transfer to bowl; cool 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 2 Place roasted spice blend in spice grinder. Grind until mixture looks like the texture of finely ground pepper. Store in airtight jar at room temperature for up to 1 month; beyond that, it will start to lose its full flavor. Makes 1/4 cup spice blend; use 1 teaspoon for this recipe.
  • 3 In wok or deep 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add raisins; stir-fry about 1 minute or until raisins plump up. Add onion and garlic; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is golden brown. Stir in spinach; toss 2 to 3 minutes or until wilted. Stir in 1 teaspoon garam masaala and salt. Cook 1 minute.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and collard greens are called saag in Hindi, India’s national language. You can use any one of these greens or a combination in this recipe.

Each household in North India has its own version of garam masaala. The spice blend can be used whole, ground raw or dry-roasted and then ground. Whatever its state, the resulting aroma puts a smile on your face and a lilt in your northern-based recipes.

You can purchase garam masaala already blended in East Indian markets or many supermarkets.
