Punjabi-Style Garam Masala
--------------------------
 2 1/2   Tb      Green cardamom pods
 5       Tb      Coriander seeds
 3               Blades of mace
 2       Tb      Black peppercorns
 2               Cinnamon sticks, 3" long
   1/4   Ts      Ground ginger
 4       Tb      Cumin seeds
   1/4   Ts      Ajowan seeds
         Ts      Ground mace
 1 1/2   Tb      Whole cloves
 1               Bay leaf
 1       Tb      Ground nutmeg

A little of this warm, spicy blend goes a long way. Coming from North
India, where meat is eaten more frequently than in the South, it is the
kind of masala that's popular as an accompaniment for almost any meat dish,
as a condiment or in the sauce. Grind toasted ingredients with mace,
peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, and bay leaf, and mix well with the other
ground ingredients.
