Garam Masala

A friend sent along a recipe for Garam Masala and I’m posting it here so I don’t lose it.

  • 1 tbsp cardamom seeds
  • 1 2″ long cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp black cumin (shahjeera)
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mace powder (javantari)
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 1 long bay leaf

Roast all the above spices lightly on low-flame for about 2 mins. Now powder them in a clean, dry spice grinder until smooth. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
