Ingredients
  1. 4 tbsp coriander seeds
  2. 2 tbsp cumin seeds
  3. 2 cinnamon sticks or cassia bark
  4. 2 tbsp green cardamom seeds
  5. 2 large black cardamom seeds (optional)
  6. 4 bay leaves
  7. 2 tsp whole cloves
  8. 1 tsp black peppercorns
  9. 1 piece star anise
  10. 1 tsp nutmeg powder (about 1/2 nut, grated)
  11. Half a piece of mace
Instructions
  1. Lightly roast all of the spices (except for the nutmeg), one by one, in a non-stick pan over medium to low heat. Roast until a fragrant smell is released. This will take about a couple of minutes for each spice. Shake the pan and stir it once in a while. Have it on a plate and let it cool down completely.
  2. Add all of the spices, including the nutmeg, to a coffee- or spice grinder and grind until you have a fine powder.
  3. Your garam masala is ready to use straight away!
Notes
  1. Make sure the pan does not get to hot. You cannot use the spices if they get burned.
  2. This recipe makes about 2/3 cup of garam masala. Keep it in an airtight container in a dark, dry place for up to 2 months.
  3. Use this whenever garam masala is called for in a recipe. It is usually added to finish up and give a rounded taste to curries.
