  • Cooking with Garam Masala?

    Ok, I am lined up to make the Butter Chicken from this site for my son's birthday dinner tomorrow. I've never cooked with garam masala before and most things I've read state to add it at the end of cooking. The recipe from this site has the garam in the yogurt marinade for the chicken.
    Any recommendations? Thanks!

    I haven't made the butter chicken from this site, but I have cooked with garam marsala several times. I wouldn't shy away from using it as the recipe recommends.

      We just made a curry for dinner. We used the Garam Masala at the beginning, and it simmered all the way through the recipe. No issues. You could probably use it however you want. Curry tasted great!

          The recipe my husband has used for years (Madhur Jaffrey's, I think) has garam masala in the marinade and it works quite well. When you think of it, the chicken is cooking quite quickly at a high heat. It's also in the butter sauce, but once again, that is a quick cook.

            Garam Masala just means "hot mixture" - it's a spice blend. Many make up their own spice blends, but this is a good one shot curry blend.
            Put it in at the beginning, even fry it off a little in ghee first before adding the the onion.

              Thanks everyone!
              I mixed the spices for the yogurt marinade this morning and I keep going back to take big sniffs. Mmm.

                I've found that different recipes need the masala used at different times. The green masala I make calls for adding it before cooking, but after sauteing all the other ingredients. Sometimes I throw it in the yogurt I use to marinate the meat, which I find makes it a little less dominate a taste.
