A fragrant blend that's perfect for your Indian-inspired dishes. I have to admit that I don’t really measure out these ingredients anymore. I just grab a teaspoon, scaling the balance in favor of my favorite ingredients.
Place all ingredients in a small pan over medium heat. Stir as pan begins to heat up. When the whole spices begin to turn color and become fragrant, remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
Allow to cool completely.
Place ingredients in a mortar or spice/coffee grinder. Grind to a fine powder. Tip: it’s easier if you start with the largest pieces, such as the cinnamon sticks and cloves, and then add the remaining seeds, ending with the bay leaves.
Transfer to an airtight container. Blend will keep for a couple of months.
