Garam Masala

My garam masala recipe:

  • 1/2 cup cumin seeds
  • 1/3 cup whole black peppercorns
  • 1/3 cup green cardamom pods
  • 1 tablespoons whole cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks, in pieces
  • 10 bay leaves
  • 1/2 nutmeg, optional

Dry-roast the cumin seeds until they begin to smoke. Cool, and then toss all the ingredients into a coffee grinder and hit frappe until all the lumps are gone. You can grind the spices in batches, then combine all in a jar and shake shake.

PS: The most important thing in this recipe is roasting the cumin seeds.
