Garam Masala | Spices | A Life Time of Cooking

As we enjoy the final month of Summer, often the hottest month, foods are still light and cooling. Gradually over the month, as signs of Autumn appear, the foods gain a little depth. We don’t want to think yet about the end of Summer, and that it means the approaching Winter. Spicy Indian food is great in Late Summer – the heat of the dishes is cooling to the system, and there are many cooling drinks, raitas and simply prepared foods. Rasams and Sambars abound.

Enjoy some Indian Deliciousness Inspiration for Late Summer.
