Garam Masala Spice Mix

Ingredients

9 tablespoons Cardamom pods
3 Cinnamon sticks, (one inch)
6 teaspoons Fenugreek seeds
3 tablespoons Cumin seeds, whole
3 tablespoons Coriander seeds, whole
6 teaspoons Turmeric, ground
3 tablespoons Black pepper, freshly ground
1 1/2 teaspoons Cloves, whole

Preparation

1
Break open the cardamom pods, discard the skins, and reserve the seeds.
2
Break the cinnamon stick into small pieces between sheets of waxed paper, using a rolling pin or kitchen mallet. Heat a dry skillet for about 2 minutes over medium heat. Combine the cardamom, cinnamon, fenugreek, cumin, and coriander and toast in the hot skillet until the seeds turn golden brown.
3
Cool the spices and combine with the turmeric, pepper, and cloves in a spice mill or blender. Grind to a fine powder. Store the mix in a jar and remember to date it. It will keep, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 months.
