To a bowl, Add 1/4 cup coriander seeds,
Ten cardamom pods,
One tablespoon whole black pepper,
1.5 teaspoons cumin
Four whole cloves, and...
3 bay leaves.
Put the spices into a pan over medium-low heat until the spices are toasted and become fragrant.
Pour the toasted spices into your mortar and pestle and start grinding. You can skip this part if you want to use a coffee grinder, but I love using my mortar and pestle! :)
Until the spices become a fine texture. The fragrance of the spices are amazing!!
Use your new homemade Garam Masala for
curry and other delicious recipes!!
Store in an airtight container. I save my old spice jars and reuse them for my spice mixes. Have fun!!!
