Garam masala is a very specific traditional spice blend which, although you will find different versions
- 1 tbsp, white cumin seeds
- ½ tbsp, black peppercorn
- 3 pods, black cardamom
- 1 ½ tsp, coriander seeds
- 8 pcs, cloves
- 2 long, cinnamon sticks
- 8 pods, green cardamom
- 2 small, bay leaves
- ½ piece, nutmeg
- 2 flowers, mace
- ½ flower, star anise
- Bash the nutmeg in a plastic bag with a rolling pin to break it into several smaller pieces
- Remove the seeds from the Cardamom pods - again, a gentle bash with a rolling pin will suffice, or use a pestle and mortar. it is optional if needed
- But I prefer not to need to remove the pods' skin
- Place all the spices in a dry frying pan or skillet and heat over very low heat, stirring constantly.
- As soon as the aroma from the spices is released, remove the pan from the heat. (This step is essential to release the aromatic oils from the spices)
- Working with only a small quantity at a time,
- Put the spices in an electric blender or grinder
- And grind them to a fine powder.
- Take it out from the grinder jar and transfer it to the bowl/plate
- Garam masala is ready to use in the recipe
- It can be stored in a bottle and paste the label with the spice name
