Hi! New Zealand here. I'm a bit confused here. Do I add all of the ground spices to the powdered spices as well as 2 TBS of garam masala?
Simply add 2 tbsp ground spices in powdered spices that I mentioned in the post and mix well. You can store the masala as per your requirements.
If the meat is 1KG then 3 Tbsp is enough to add.
