   “ ”Garam marsala“ means ”hot spices“ and is generally added to foods
   near the end of cooking or as a garnish. This homemade version is
   superior to store bought, which is usually heavy on the cheaper
   spices and not as fresh. Make this in small quantities so that it
   stays fresh. Cardamom seeds (not pods) available in East Indian food
   stores, are used here as they give a more delicate taste. Regular
   cumin seeds can be substituted for the black cumin seeds.” Place
   ingredients in clean electric or spice grinder. Turn machine on 30 to
   40 seconds or until spices are finely ground. Store in small jar with
   tightly fitted lid. Keep away from heat and sunlight. MAKES ABOUT 3
