Garam masala is one of my favourite spices and meatballs are one of the easiest dinner meals you can make. Why not combine the two together? I found a recipe that did just that!!!

It’s about balance . . .

 

What is in Garam Masala? It’s made up of a variety of spices which may include some of the following: coriander seeds, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, black cumin seeds, dry giger, black cardamon cloves, cinnamon, and crushed bay leaves. There are different variations of Garam Masala, so search around for the brand you like best. Some of the spices in Garam Masala are packed with antioxidants and have been shown to lower blood cholesterol (coriander seeds), blood sugar, and have anti-inflammatory properties (cumin). Not too bad for some spices right?
