I make a lot of Punjabi dishes so I''m eager to try this garam masala recipe with them. Just one question please, I''ve always worked with and seen elsewhere the ratio to be 2 parts coriander to 1 part cumin, but your recipe shows the other way around, so heavier on the cumin, is this correct? If so it''s something new I''ve learned and must try! Am I correct in assuming this masala goes better with a ''gravy'' dish? Thanks for your help.

I found this recipe in the recently bought book ''Punjabi Khana'' and would like to say big thanks. Well explained even for a person who is far from Indian traditional kitchen; and a result is wonderful aromas, so unexpectedly fresh and strong.
