What’s in garam masala

Garam masala is a ground spice blend traditionally used in Indian, Nepalese, and Bangladeshi cooking.

The spice blend can contain a variety of spices, but common ingredients include cardamon, cinnamon, peppercorns, mace, and cumin.

You can easily find garam masala in supermarkets or local stores, but if you can’t, mix allspice and ground cumin together for a suitable alternative.

Is coconut oil good for cooking?

At one time, coconut oil was the must-have food trend that was popping up in everyone’s kitchen.

However, some people now argue that the ingredient isn’t that super.

While there is still some debate, coconut oil continues to be a common ingredient in cooking.

Thanks to its high resistance to heat, coconut oil makes for a great alternative for swallowing frying foods. Be sure to purchase refined coconut oil if you want to avoid your food having a slight taste of coconut.

Top tip: You can substitute the fresh green beans for frozen ones and can use boiled potatoes if you don’t want to roast them – making it totally adaptable and unbelievably tasty!

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas 6. Blitz together all ingredients for the curry paste in a high-speed blender and set aside.
  2. Place the halved potatoes on a baking sheet, toss in a tablespoon of cooking oil and roast for 30-45 minutes or until soft and golden brown.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a deep pan, on medium-high heat. Fry the onion and celery in the oil until soft.
