3 tablespoons cumin seeds
2 tablespoons turmeric powder
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 x 5cm cinnamon stick (crumbled)
4 cardamom pods
5 dried curry leaves
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
Heat the pan and first put coriander seeds and fry it till it starts to get golden brown. Then add rest of the ingredients and fly all in medium heat, till it is nice golden brown. (Do not burn it.)
Place in a grinder and grind to a fine powder.

If you can find dry turmeric, it´s the best.
