A flavourful spice mix that can be used for Meat and Vegetable preparations. I keep two versions of this spice mix on hand. One where all the ingredients are dry roasted, and the other where they are ground without roasting. Roasting enhances the flavours of the individual spices, and dramatically changes the end result. 


Ingredients:
3 tablespoon coriander seeds
2 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon peppercorn (black pepper)
40 cloves
20 cardamom
6" cinnamon 
1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

Directions:
1. Grind all the whole spices to a powder. If making the roasted version, individually dry roast the spices prior to grinding them.

2. Mix with turmeric powder.

3. Store in an air-tight jar.
