Garam masala

From my sister – thanks again, K!

 You need: 2 bay leaves (tej patta), 1 black cardomam (badi elaichi), 2 sticks cinnamon (dalchini), 4-5 peppercorns (sabut kali mirch); 2 dried red chilies (lal mirch); 4-5 cloves (laung); 1 tsp cumin (jeera)

 How to: Dry-grind everything together into as fine a powder as you can. It’s best if made fresh each time you need to use it.
