Found this recipe on the back of my basmati rice bag (Wild Harvest Organic from Albertsons). I've made it twice, ones with and once without chicken, and it's really good! Similar to what we've had in Indian restaurants. If you don't have garam masala, it's simply a blend of several more common spices - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garam_masala. I used corriendar, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves and tumerac. Be sure to prepare most of the ingredients before you start cooking the rice.
