Garam Masala
------------
3 cinnamon sticks
2 tbsp cardamom seeds, removed from their pods
2 tbsp whole cloves
5 tbsp coriander seeds
4 tbsp black peppercorns

Crush the cinnamon sticks on a clean kitchen towel with a kitchen mallet
or the end of a rolling pin. Heat the spices in a 200 F oven for 15
minutes. Pulverize the mixture to a fine powder in an electric spice or
coffee grinder, or in a blender. Store the spices in an airtight jar or
self-sealing plastic bag. Yields about 1 1/2 cups.
