Our authentic Garam Masala was formulated by award-winning chef, Troy MacLarty of Bollywood Theater in Portland. We source and blend the freshest cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, cayenne and cardamom from small farms in southern India.
Featured in The Modern Proper, Sunset Magazine, Eater, USA Today, Portland Monthly and The Oregonian.
Our Garam Masala goes with everything from soup, fish, and veggies to chicken, lamb, potatoes and even popcorn.
If you're looking for more ideas, there’s even a Bollywood Theater recipe inside each tube for Troy's Paneer Makhani.
Also available in a 3-pack box set with Tikka and Vindaloo Masala.
Bollywood Theater is a wildly popular Indian street food restaurant with two locations in Portland, Oregon. Both are just a rickshaw ride from downtown.

I love the garam masala from Reluctant Trading. My chicken curry comes out delicious and even my friends from India commented that my curry tastes authentic. I am a repeat customer on this spice mix and recently ordered 3 at one time lol. Try it; it’s such a better blend than most store brands that are very cinnamon forward. Reluctant Trading: be prepared for another order from California for garam masala soon!
Love these spices! So fresh every time!
This curry powder really hits the spot. The best I have tried.
I’ve only used one so far but I’m not disappointed! Thanks again for a great product.
The best around! The freshness and quality of each spice comes through in the blend and just makes each dish sing with flavor. I love sourcing product from reluctant trading, simply the best, fast and friendly service and fair prices. 10/10
