Quick-and-easy-homemade-garam-masala-recipe


Garam masala powder is an Indian spice mix powder. A very essential ingredient in Indian cooking. A  mixture of some aromatic spices which are slightly roasted and blended into a smooth powder. It has a pungent smell. It is easy to make. You can make in large quantity and keep it in an airtight container. But I will suggest dishes like chicken chaap or biriyani or any special recipe do it fresh. Ingredients which I have used are the basics of this recipe.You can add more or less as per your requirement.

Homemade-chicken-tikka

Chicken Tikka is a very popular dish across the world. This is one of my favorite recipes. It is normally served with green chutney and some sliced onion rings. The aromatic flavor and the tender,
juicy taste which comes from yogurt and the mixture of spices makes it so special. The secret behind the taste lies in the marination and resting time after the marination.juicy taste which comes from yogurt and the mixture of spices makes it so special.
