  • Next step is to dry the spices. If you live in a warm climate place with lot of sunlight, then you can leave the spices out in the sun for a day. Alternatively preheat the oven to 200oF. Once it reaches the temperature switch it off. Then spread all the ingredients on a baking sheet and place it inside the oven until all the spices are warm.

  • Crush big pieces of spices in a mortar and pestle before grinding. This is to make sure that large and hard spices do not damage the grinder jar.

  • Put all the spices in a dry grinder jar and grind till you get a fine powder. I used Vitamix mixer with dry grains jar.
  • Sieve the ground mixture to separate out the coarse pieces.
  • Do not discard the coarse pieces, just reground them or use them in curries that take whole spices.
  • Your garam masala is ready. Store in an air-tight container in cool and dry place.
