Recipe : Garam Masala

Ingredients :

  • Coriander seeds - 4 tbsp

  • Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp

  • Black Peppercorns 1 tbsp

  • Black Cumin seeds (Shahjeera) 1 tsp

  • Dry Ginger 1 tsp

  • Black Cardamom - 3-4 large pods approx

  • Cloves 2-3

  • Cinnamon - 2 x 1 pieces

  • Crushed Bay Leaves - 2

Method :

  • Heat a heavy skillet on a medium flame and gently roast all ingredients (leave cardamom in its pods till later) except the dry ginger, till they turn a few shades darker.

  • Stir occasionally. Do not be tempted to speed up the process by turning up the heat as the spices will burn on the outside and remain raw on the inside.

  • When the spices are roasted turn off the flame and allow them to cool.

  • Once cooled, remove the cardamom seeds from their skins and mix them with all the other roasted spices.

  • Grind them all together, to a fine powder in a grinder.

  • Store in an airtight container in a cool and dark place.
