5 spice curry has
Red Chili Powder
Garam Masala has
I'd say the taste would be very different between the two
I have tried making the spice blend from scratch and there are recipes out there for it (proportions), but the McCormick's blend is good and I like it enough to be willing to save time and just use it.
My Indian friends tell me in India, everyone makes their curry differently. You eat other folks curry, but the curry you like best is the one your mom or grandmother made (the one you grew up eating).
Sounds like our likes and dislikes for Gumbo or Chicken and Dumplings here.
"That's not like my Mama made!"
"Tastes just like my Mama made, except she only used dark meat chicken."
