Yield: 2 cups 

1/2 cup whole black peppercorn 
1/4 cup whole coriander seed 
1/4 cup cassia or 1/4 cup cinnamon bark 
1/4 cup whole cloves 
1/3 cup cumin seed 
2 teaspoons whole cardamom seeds 
4 whole whole nutmegs 
1/2 cup ground paprika 


1 Basically, just place all the spices except the paprika and nutmeg in a blender or adequate grinder and process until it becomes a powder. 

2 If necessary you can grind 1/2 cup at a time. 

3 Grate the nutmeg and blend this with the paprika into the spices. 

4 Store in an airtight jar. 

5 Generally in some areas, they lightly toast the spices in an oven to bring out more flavor. 

6 You can gain this also by putting the amount you're going to use, on a hot dry frypan and toast it for a few seconds before using. 

7 This not only makes the kitchen smell good, but brings out a richer flavor of any spice. 

8 *Note* You can also use ground spices, but using them whole is the authentic way. 

9 Four nutmegs come to about 1/4 cup ground. 

10 Be careful how much nutmeg you use; it's toxic in large doses.
