This blend of ground spices is used extensively in Indian cuisine. The spices in garam masala are warming, meaning that they increase the metabolism (rather than being hot in flavor). But, the further South you go in India, the more they tend to use chili peppers for heat instead of black pepper like in Northern India. Garam masala is used with many meat and fish dishes. You will also find it in vegetarian and vegan dishes and soups based on legumes and vegetables. Garam masala is intended to balance different flavors. Using it, you will bring out the flavors of the dish and you may be able to use less of other seasonings (such as salt).
