Garam Masala
Garam Masala Plus :( Everything what you will need to make a GOOD_CURRY, besides adding few more light ingredients i.e. onion, garlic, ginger, chili, turmeric, and paprika to taste.) Ingredients: Yield-1-Cup. 1.5tbsp. Fennel seed 1/2tsp. Cardamom seeds 1tbsp. Black Cardamom seeds 2-1'' Cinnamon sticks-Broken 2tbsp. Coriander seeds 1tsp. cumin seeds black 1tsp. Cumin seeds white 1/2tsp Black whole pepper/1/2 tsp. whole white pepper 1tbsp Pomegranate seeds 2ea. Star Anise 4ea. Bay Leaves 1tsp. Cloves 1tbsp. Fenugreek seeds Method: Heat a heavy skillet to medium and gently roast all the ingredients except bay leaves, until turn a few shades darker. Stir occasionally. Do not try to speed the process by turning the heat up as the spices will burn on the outside and remain raw inside. When the spices are roasted turn off the heat and allow the spices to cool. Once cooled, grind them all together, to a fine powder in a clean, dry coffee grinder, or a Mortar Pestle. Store in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place. Note: Basic and simple Garam masala is a five spices mixture of roasted ground cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, cloves, cumin.
