I don’t like recipes that ask for special spice mix that are hard to come by [especially in a small town, where people look at you weird if you ask for strange and foreign things like coriander]. Fortunately most of those spice mix are easy to make by yourself. And since I’m currently trying a lot of Indian recipes it was time to figure out how to make Garam Masala.


  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground coriander powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 0.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 0.5 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 0.5 teaspoons ground nutmeg

_ combine all ingredients well

_ store in an air tight container [in a cool, dark place]

for the best taste use ingredients unground and roast them in a pan – then grind them together
