Garam Masala Spice

Does anyone know where to get Kosher-certified Garam Masala spice? I know there are various recipes for blending yourself but I want to know if there is one already blended that is under supervision. Thanks in advance.

  1. I've seen some at Super Walmart. I think it had a Star-K hechsher.

    1. I'm pretty sure Fairway sells one, but that won't help unless you're in the NY metro area.

        Yes, they do. I have some, and really like it.

      2. The OU website lists Fairway, Balducci's, Zabar's and Spice Hunter's as certified (among others):

            Another company is http://www.thespicehouse.com

            You just have to ensure it comes from their Milwaukee store since that is the only one that is kosher certified.

          2. I haven't bought this for awhile but McCormick used to have it. Don't know if they still do. Whole Foods has a brand of various spice blends in little boxes that have supervision. I'll have to look up the brand.

              I think you might be thinking of Spicely (in the little boxes): http://www.spicely.com/

                I'm not sure about the Golchin Garam Masala - but I was surprised to see that Sadaf's has Rabbi Bukspan's hechsher. Most of Sadaf's spices are RCC and most of Golchin's are Kehilla Kosher.
