Odiya Garam Masala/Curry Powder (Mish Mash Blend of Spices): My MIL's Secret Recipe


Odiya garam masala curry powder
Soon after marriage, I was in Odisha. At that time, I got the opportunity to savor lip-smacking recipes from my MIL's Odiya kitchen. Odiya cuisine is a foodie's delight. In fact, Odiyas are big-time foodies. 

They have such a diverse and rich food culture. For ceremonies, such as wedding or thread ceremonies or even someone's death, they throw lavish feasts, of course, depending on the occasion. Celebrations are marked with gala feasts. I have recently had the opportunity to feast upon Odiya delicacies. Yes, I do love Odiya food, especially made by my MIL. She is just amazing in the kitchen.

So let's come to the garam masala-cum-curry powder recipe. I loved the distinct aroma, taste of the garam masala that my MIL made for me during my first visit to Odisha. I still remember I loved that masala so much that I shared one big packet with my own mother as well.

This garam masala-cum-curry powder is good to go in curries, stir fries, or just about anything! So this time I got the recipe written from my MIL, so I could share it with you all. Though I couldn't replicate the taste (since the roasting of masalas was done one by one by my sasu ma on an earthen pot then...contrarily, I have roasted all the spices together on a stove top...yes, this does make a big difference), it still is a great savior and much better alternative to outside masalas.

The best thing about Indian masalas is that every single ingredient offers health benefits - of course, if consumed in moderation.
