This is a really great Garam Masala spice mix that my cook gave me when I lived in India. It's wonderful when making Indian food.

If you don't have ground spices, you can put everything into a coffee grinder or break everything down with a mortar and pestal.

REMINDER...if you use a coffee grinder, don't use the one you grind your coffee with as you will not want to use it to grind coffee again; unless you like Garam Masala flavored coffee.
