Garam Masala (mild)
3 ounce coriander seeds
1/4 teaspoon mace
1 ounce cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 ounce fenugreek seeds
1 ounce cinnamon
1 ounce cloves
1 ounce black peppercorns
2 ounce cardamom seeds (brown are best)
Roast coriander seeds, cumin, and fenugreek seeds separately for a
few minutes until their rich aroma is given off. Combine with all other
ingredients and grind. Before grinding, a heavy rolling pin may be used to
crush the spices enclosed in an envelope of foil.
Pass the mixture through a sieve and store in an airtight jar.
Note: Roasting the ingredients separately is important since each gives off
its characteristic aroma at a different time.
