Garam Masala {Indian Spice Blend}

I love Indian food, but rarely make it at home. When I do though, I like to at least make my own garam masala. I feel that making it is so much simpler and yields better flavor.


Garam Masala {Indian Spice Blend}

1/4 cup corriander seeds
1/4 cup cumin seeds
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1/2 tablespoon green cardamon pods
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
5 dried red peppers 
3 bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick

  • Toast all of the ingredients in a pan on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Once toasted, put into a grinder and grind until smooth.
