  • Lightly roast each spice in a small pan until they get hot, about a minute. Stir frequently. Make sure not to burn them by roasting them too long. The goal is to make them a bit toasty so they are easy to grind.
  • Cool spices and then grind fine in a coffee or spice grinder. Store in an airtight container away from direct sunlight.


I use whole green cardamom pods in this recipe and not just the seeds. Roast and grind them whole.
