Remember when I reviewed the book, The New Indian Slow Cooker and shared a Tomato-Butter Sauce Recipe? I loved the cookbook, but I was having a hard time finding the spices it asked for at my local grocery stores.
Since then, I’ve discovered a brand that makes authentic Indian spices: Jiva Organics. You easily order them from Amazon and have them delivered to your door.
What is garam masala? I was sent a package of garam masala to review. It’s one of the most-used spices for Indian cooking! Garam masala is a mix of several different spices. It can be used to season chicken, fish, lamb, rice, breads and more. If you want to make Indian food at home, it’s a must-have spice!
Garam masala is essential to the tomato-butter sauce recipe, but is also used in many other recipes found in the New Indian Slow Cooker. I have been itching to try some more recipes from the book! I used this garam masala to make my tomato-butter sauce again, and it turned out great!
In addition to garam masala, Jiva also sells several other spices that I had a difficult time finding, including fenugreek.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
