Expert Tips

Garam masala is a traditional Indian spice blend often consisting of as many as 12 spices, including coriander, black pepper, cumin, cardamom and cinnamon.

Be sure to use plastic gloves when seeding and chopping the chile. Its essential oils can burn if you use your hands and then touch your face. If you’d like extra heat, don’t remove all of the seeds…or try using 2 serranos!
