 2 1/2 Tbls    Green Cardamom Pods
 1 1/2 Tbls    Whole Cloves
     4 Tbls    Cumin Seeds
     2 3"      Cinnamon Sticks
     5 Tbls    Coriander Seeds
     1         Bay Leaf

Toast the green cardamom pods, cumin seeds, coriander seeds and ajowan
seeds in a wide, heavy bottomed pan, stirring occasionally until they brown
and begin to release their fragrance (5-7 minutes). Place in a mortar,
spice grinder or blender. Add the peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon sticks and
bay leaf. Grind to a fine powder. Add the mace, ginger and nutmeg. Mix
thoroughly. Place in a glass container. Cover tightly.
