Spices have the ability to transform the most bland of dishes into a delicacy. The combinations are endless, as many as cooks. However, there are mixtures that, because of how well they work, have earned a name of their own.
Such is the case of Garam masala, which translates as spicy mix, is a combination of spices originating from northern India. This group of ground spices is usually used to accompany meat dishes. However, it also fits perfectly with vegetables, to the point that it is becoming more and more common among the vegetarian and vegan communities.
