    Thanks for this, Mallika – it sounds SO easy that I will have to try making some! I have a spare coffee grinder that I use for spices so I’ll give it a whirl.

    I use more or less the same amounts, but no bay leaves. I like to have the taste of cinnamon and geera predominant, and maybe less cloves. But I am a bit old-fashioned I have this idea that a metal grinder will alter the taste.

    So, I use a ceramic pepper grinder and grind everything by hand, doesn’t take that long and I finish it off in the mortar to get it really fine. I actually love using the mortar and pestle I find it relaxing. I smash the cinnamon with the pestle before putting it in the grinder so it gets through. Might take a little longer but I like to take the time, nothing beats freshly ground spices.

    I might blog about my version next time I make some.
