- 4 tbsp. coriander seeds
- 2 tbsp. whole black pepper
- 4 black cardamoms
- 1 tsp. cloves
- 3 inch stick cinnamon

1. Crush the black cardamom thoroughly before adding them to the other spices as they are very hard and may ruin the blades of the grinder.
2. Put all the spices in small electric mill and grind them to a fine powder. Store in an airtight container.
