Garam Masala
Spice Mixtures

This is a ground spice mixture found in many Indian recipes.  You can buy it or prepare your own; the flavor is obviously better when it is freshly ground in small amounts.

2 Tablespoons black peppercorns
1 Tablespoon black cumin seeds
1 small cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cardamom seeds 
2 Tablespoons coriander seeds

Mix all ingredients together in a coffee grinder and grind to a powder.  Store in a spice jar or Tupperware.
