I absolutely love comfort food. Although I couldn’t possibly do it justice in one post, Indian food, and the many variations found within that ethnicity are a go to comfort food for me. Authentic recipes may differ slightly or significantly depending on region, you can still make your own version of wonderful Indian inspired food at home with ingredients that are readily available. Garam Masala, which means “hot (garam) mixture of spices (masala)”, is not unique to India, as it can be found in different variations throughout South Asia. It is however a mainstay in Indian cuisine and belongs high up on the list of great comfort foods and is surprisingly simple to make. I keep a Garam Masala blend on hand in an old Miron jar to use weekly.
