Dry Masala

Goda masala/ Garam masala

Goda masala is Maharashtrian, whole spice powder. It’s close to Garam masala (except for a few extra spices). This is my grandmother’s recipe, which was passed on to my mother and I would love to pass it to my kids.

It’s best to weigh all ingredients. If you don’t have weighing scale handy, you can manually measure them.

Hi, I’m Neeta and welcome to my blog, Cardamomncream. On this blog, you will find family recipes and some new recipes, but with a twist.
Cooking comes naturally to me, I guess I inherited it from my maternal grandmother. I love baking as it’s a good activity to spend time with my kids.
Baking is my first love. I had a home based baking business of custom cakes. But, with constant moves comes adjusting and settling to new environments and starting over again. So decided to share my experience and knowledge with you all.
The idea behind the blog is to document all my recipes and experience with food, and record all my traditional family recipes, which is a part of my culture.
