Garam masala

I have taken to making my own seasoning mixes and garam masala is frequently used in Indian recipes. is a handy website. I found 4 ways to make garam masala there.  One is easy, the others are more complicated and, I suspect have more dramatic flavor.

Here is the easy one:

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1½ teaspoons ground coriander
1½ teaspoons ground cardamom
1½ teaspoons ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Buying it ready made is easy enough, but if you don’t have any in the house and are in the middle of making dinner, this beats running to the store.  Also, if there’s a part you don’t like, you don’t have to have it.  I leave cloves out because Chuck hates them with the heat of a thousand suns.
