Garam Masala as a Rub??

Anyone ever experiment with using Garam Masala as a Rub?

It's an Indian spice that consists of toasted and ground Coriander, Cumin, Cinnamon, Cloves, and Black pepper. It has a sweetness to it from the Cinnamon and Cloves, and I think with some Kosher salt and granulated Garlic that it would make a nice rub for Pork Tenderloin. Just wondering if anyone has ever tried something like this?

    Yes it will have a sweet flavor, but so do most of the sauces made with jam. Should be a great cook. Here is an idea.

    Lamb, Leg, Boneless, Khara Masala Lamb

    Whole spices (khara) are used in this curry dish so you should warn the diners of their presence! Deliciously served with freshly baked Naan or a rice accompaniment, this dish is best made with good-quality spring lamb.

    5 Tbs corn oil
    2 medium onions, chopped
    1 tsp shredded ginger
    1 tsp sliced garlic
    6 whole dried red chilies
    3 cardamom pods
    2 cinnamon sticks
    6 black peppercorns
    3 cloves
    1/2 tsp salt
    450gm 1 Lb Boned leg of lamb, cubed
    600ml 1 Pint 2 1/2 cups water
    2 fresh green chilies, sliced
    2 Tbs chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)

    1 Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Lower the heat slightly and fry the onions until they are lightly browned. Add half the ginger and half the garlic and stir well. Throw in half the red chilies, the cardamoms, cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves and salt.
    2 Add the lamb and fry over a medium heat. Stir continuously with a semi-circular movement, using a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan. Continue in this way for about 5 minutes.
    3 Pour in the water, cover with a lid and cook over a medium-low heat for 35-40 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the meat is tender.
    4 Add the rest of the ginger, garlic and dried red chilies, along with the fresh green chilies and fresh coriander (cilantro).
    5 Continue to stir over the heat until you see some free oil on the sides of the pan. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
