Kashmiri Korma Curry Spice Mix December 8, 2010

1 tsp Turmeric
10 cardamon pods
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
8 Black peppercorns
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp ground Cumin
2 tsp Ground Corriander
1 tsp dried Chilli flakes (optional)
1tb Ground paprika
1tb chopped fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic

Break open the cardamon pods to get the seeds out. You could buy the seeds, but I’m not sure how much you’d need as equivalent (maybe a teaspoon worth?). The seeds give a greater aroma and flavour than the powder does…. so use the seeds if you can. Then crush all the spices together in a mortar and pestle. You can keep this mixture in a spice jar and use all of it at once, or smaller amounts if needed. When you go to use it, fry it off with a little oil and the ginger and garlic.

    Hey – thanks for the spice recipe – I needed to make up some Korma spices to add to another recipe. I often break open the green cardamon pods to get the seeds. I think 10 pods would be about 2 tsp worth of seeds – hope this helps
