Garam Masala Powder

I usually make my own garam masala powder. I eyeball the ingredients most of the times and don't use standard weights to weigh the ingredients. Here is my recipe to the garam masala powder.


1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds
2 teaspoon black pepper seeds
2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/4 teaspoon flennel seeds (badishep/sauf)
good sized pinch of mace powder or a small piece of mace approximate to a pinch (Javatri)
good sized pinch of nutmeg powder or grated nutmeg
good sized pinch of sahi jeera
1 1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 inch stick of cinnamon or 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
2 (2-inch approx) bay leaf

Roast the above ingredients on low flame and grind into a fine powder.
