Garam Masala

1 1/2 T cumin seeds
1 1/2 T coriander seeds
1/4 t fennel seeds
1 - 3 inch cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
1 1/2 T black peppercorns
4 green cardamon pods
1/4 t whole cloves
4 small, dried red chilies, broken
1/2 t sesame seeds

Heat a wok over medium heat until very hot. Add all the ingredients except nutmeg. Reduce heat to low and toast for 5-8 minutes, tossing and turning constantly, until aromatic. Add the nutmeg. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Grind to a fine powder in a spice grinder. Store in an airtight jar. (Yields 1/4 cup spice mixture)
