I believe perhaps this is what made their food so different and delicious, no matter how hard we try yet it's difficult to achieve that flavour. In the present times, most of us don't have much time to invest in an extensive cooking. Usually, we cut down our time by allowing us to have instant food items, which is, of course, great when we are in short of time. But trust me to give yourself some time and have few things like masalas, pickles, jams, purees etc prepare beforehand so that you can use it whenever you want, in hurry or not, it is going to make your dish more flavoursome, more fragrant in no extra effort and time. Let me provide you with the detailed garam masala powder preparation,
