Garam masala is a blend of spices and is a Northern Indian style curry powder.
As a rule, garam masala is added at the last step of cooking, almost like a fresh herb. If cooked too long, it becomes bitter. This highly aromatic seasoning serves as an all-purpose blend in Indian cooking, seasoning dishes from lamb and pork to fresh fish to potato and vegetable dishes.
