Spices are the soul of Indian Cooking. When you come accross the word "Masala" in our store it is the Hindi word for "spice and spice blend". The most common masala is the "Garam Masala" which is an aromatic blend of warm spices.
Fresh herbs like fresh ginger, green chilies, coconut, nuts, water, vinegar, yogurt are sometimes added to the ground spices. This wet mixture is called "wet masala" and is used as a marinade or sautéed in oil before adding the main vegetable or meat. This wet masala may be infused in tomato and onion purees and cooked together to make curries.
