Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add all the whole spices to it.
Toast the spices shaking the skillet every few seconds. Cumin will turn reddish brown and bay leaves have become brittle. The mixture will also become fragrant.
Transfer immediately to a bowl to cool. You don't want the spices to overcook and burn.
Once the spices are completely cooled, then transfer to a spice/coffee grinder and grind to a powder. Grate 1/4 tsp nutmeg and fold it in.
Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
- It is important to let the spices cool before grinding, as otherwise they will have moisture in them which is not good for storage.
