Tandoori Masala (Spice Mix)

½ cup mild long red Kashmiri chillies
¼ cup whole coriander seeds
1 tbsp whole cumin seeds
½ tbsp whole black pepper
½ tbsp whole cloves
½ tbsp whole cardamom pods (add 1 pod of black cardamom, if you wish)
1 tsp whole fenugreek seeds
3, 2 inch sticks of cinnamon or cassia bark

1 tsp dried ground ginger

1 tsp dried ground garlic
½ tsp grated nutmeg
½ tsp ground turmeric
3 - 4 tbsp paprika (or enough to achieve your desired colour) Method:

Toss together the first eight ingredients in a hot, heavy pan, for about 1 - 2 minutes, until the spices smell heavenly.

Transfer to a powerful blender, and add the remaining ground spices.

Blend to a smooth powder. Transfer to a clean, fairly airtight spice jar, and store in a cool dark place.

This recipe makes around 1 cup of tandoori masala.
