Organic Garam Masala is a staple for curry lovers.
Organic Garam Masala is a wonderfully fragrant combination of spices which makes a delicious Indian curry. The word ‘Garam’ means ‘warm’ in Hindi and ‘Masala’ means ‘mixed spice’. Although ‘Garam’ means ‘warm’, this does not indicate that garam masala is spicy, more that it has warming properties in its unique spice mixture.
The spices used in garam masala vary depending on the region of India the mix hails from – our organic Garam Masala is a delicious blend of organic coriander, organic cinnamon, organic ginger and organic cloves. This mixture offers a great range of minerals and nutrients due to its combination of herbal ingredients.
If you are new to Indian cuisine and want to experiment with organic spice blends then this is a simple place to start.

Magnesium: This wonderful nutrient is often referred to as natures tranquilliser. It is necessary for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and electrolyte balance. It is also needed for normal nervous system and muscle function.
Calcium: It is a common myth that we need to eat dairy to get an adequate calcium intake. Many plant based foods boast high levels of it. Calcium is needed for the normal maintenance of bones and teeth and digestive enzyme function. It is also needed for normal energy-yielding metabolism and neurotransmission in the body.
Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function and immune system function. It also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and energy-yielding metabolism.
