Garam Masala

 Like I said in my previous post, not everyone has garam masala sitting among their spices. I didn't. However, I had most of the spices needed, so I mixed up my own, then kept the leftover for my next garam masala dish. 


1 Tbs ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cardamon
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground fennel seed
1/4 tsp ground mace


Mix all of the spices together. Cover tightly and store until needed. I didn't have all of the spices ground, so I ground some of my own spices for this mix. For example, I had fennel seeds, but not ground fennel. So, I just ground up some fennel seeds and added it to the mix. 

Stealthy Cooking Tip: Freshly ground spices will keep for several months. Smell your spices - if they don't smell of any spice, they may be old and need to be replaced.
