Gharam Masala

Ingredients

1/4 cup Black cardamon pods
5 Cinnamon sticks, broken up
2 tablespoons Cloves
1/4 Nutmeg seed, grated
2 tablespoons Black cardamom pods, husked
3 Cinnamon sticks, broken up
1/4 cup Cloves
1/4 Nutmeg seed, grated
1/4 cup Cumin seed
1/2 cup Coriander seed (Mughal-Style Ghurum)
1 cup Green cardamon pods, husked
2 Cinnamon sticks, broken up
1/4 cup Cloves
1 tablespoon Nutmeg, grated
1/4 cup Black peppercorns (Kashmir Style Ghurum)
1 cup Green cardamon pods
5 Cinnamon sticks, broken up
1/4 cup Cloves
1/2 Nutmeg seed, grated

Preparation

1
Roast the spices in a small, heavy-based pan over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly until they become a shade darker than their original color. The spices will also give out a distinct aroma and the pan will emit light fumes of smoke.
2
Remove the spices from the pan and grind them to a fine powder in a coffee grinder. Store in an airtight jar for up to 6 months.

I don't get it. Why are some ingredients repeated? Some with different measurements? I guess I'll follow Curt's suggestion and buy it at the store...
