ground my own garam masala after my favourite brand was discontinued. it feels almost as serious as eating mango pickle. it may still need some tweaking to the proportions, though i didn't know to lightly toast it the first time. hence a very small testing recipe. it went well with my chickpeas.

1 tbs coriander
1/2 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp caraway
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
5 bay leaves
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4-1/2 tsp cardamon

lots of indian people live in my neighbourhood. the stores are well stocked.
