  • 1 black peppercorns
  • 4 black cardamom pods

Heat a pan until almost smoking. Reduce the heats and add the black cardamom pods and toss around. Break up the cinnamon stick and add to the pan with the black peppercorns and cloves and stir. Add the cumin seeds and the bay leaves, which should also be broken up roughly. When the smell begins to waft up from the pan, remove from the heat and transfer to a mortar, spice grinder or coffee grinder (cleaned thoroughly) and grind the spices to a powder. Add the coriander, turmeric and chili powders and mix thoroughly.
