This spice mix is a blend of cardamoms, cinnamon and cloves in a 1:2:2 ratio (by weight). The combination of these three spices gives a rich flavor to any dish. Again, this is an intense spice mix and should be used sparingly
50 gms cinnamon (patta/dalchini)
50 gms cloves (gramboo/long)
25 gms cardamom seeds (elaichi/elakka/elakki)
Dry roast the spices individually in a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron. Make sure the flame is set at medium heat. Keep stirring, be watchful and don’t let spices burn on you.
Grind the spices together into a fine powder.
Store in an air tight container.
Use sparingly since these are intense spices and can be over powering
