Have some spare time at the weekend? Want to have something different to offer to friends stopping by for lunch or dinner? Want your kids to have a different kind of meal that is both healthy and tasty? This is possible with most Paleo recipes and the dish featured here is a great example. This Paleo Lamb Saag is a combination of nutrient-rich spinach and lamb, cooked slowly to perfection and seasoned with mixed herbs and spices. You can pop this meal in a slow cooker and you can do other things whilst waiting for it to cook.
The main ingredients, lamb and spinach are nutritious, but there’s another ingredient in this recipe that stands out: garam masala. Garam Masala literally means “hot mixture of spices” and is popular in Indian cooking, and as the name suggests, it gives the spice or hotness to the meal through the use of various herbs and spices in the mixture.
Garam masala is available in stores or you can make your own, and we have a Garam Masala recipe as a bonus for you. Now you don’t have to worry about the Garam Masala you will use for this featured recipe and other recipes.

This dish is a winner, especially if you have a great Garam Masala mixture. If you are wondering if Garam Masala is Paleo approved, the answer is YES! Spices, seeds, and herbs that usually make up garam masala are Paleo friendly. Store bought is good, but your dish can be even better with your own homemade and Paleo approved garam masala. And besides making your dish flavoursome, making your own Garam Masala has other benefits. Here are some benefits that will make you want to make more of your own garam masala.
A store bought Garam Masala costs about $7 for a 2-ounce jar (around 1/4 cup). Sounds cheap? Then $1.50 for 1/2 cup or 4 ounces will definitely sound cheaper because you get twice the amount of store bought Garam Masala. You may find that you already have some of the ingredients for homemade Garam Masala already in your kitchen, whilst the others can be bought at your nearest grocery store and won’t cost that much.
If you want to have that lovely aroma of roasted spices, then making your own Garam Masala will do the trick. Freshly roasted spices will release oils from each spice and bring out their flavours without overpowering your dish. For some, the aroma of roasted spices in their homes is an awesome stress reliever.
There is no “official” Garam Masala recipe, so you have control over the taste and the herbs and spices that you use. Unlike store bought garam masala, homemade versions can be adjusted just the way you want them to be. No need to worry about kids who hate spicy food or adults that adore spicy hot food.
Because it’s cheap and the taste is adjustable, you can make some to give away to your family and friends. If they adore Indian food or anything spicy and aromatic, they will surely be thankful for your generosity of homemade Garam Masala. So if you want to have your own Garam Masala, here is a simple recipe that is definitely Paleo approved.
So why not try and make your own Garam Masala using this recipe!
These Paleo-approved recipes for Lamb Saag and Garam Masala will definitely bring your family and friends together. You get to taste the Indian food and know that you are serving fresh and healthy food. If that doesn’t make you want to try these recipes, then I don’t know what else will.
