Garam masala powder 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.
