Garam Masala

This is considered the "magic spice" in Indian cooking. So many recipes start with garam masala, and once you make your own, it's easy to see why. It's also a necessary ingredient in homemade curry. It's normally made by toasting spices and then grinding them, but this is a quick mixture that does very well. --Mark


1 T ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg


Mix cumin, coriander, cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a bowl. Place mix in an airtight container, and store in a cool, dry place.
