Garam Masala Spice Blend

Garam masala is very expensive. This recipe is much less expensive than buying the made product.


about 1/2 cup


2 tablespoons coriander seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon cardamom seeds
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
2 dried red chile peppers, seeds discarded
2 tablespoons ground turmeric


Combine the coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cardamom seeds, peppercorns, fennel seeds, mustard seeds, cloves, and red chile peppers in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Toast until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Grind the toasted spices in a clean coffee grinder or spice mill to a fine powder. Spoon in the turmeric, and process to combine. Use immediately, or store in a sealed jar for up to 1 month.
