    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 200.
    2. 2
      Spread the cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cumin, coriander and peppercorns in one layer in a large shallow roasting pan.
    3. 3
      Roast on the bottom shelf of the oven for 30 minutes, stirring and turning the mixture 2 or 3 times with a large wooden spoon.
    4. 4
      Do not let the spices brown.
    5. 5
      Break open the cardamom pods between your fingers or place them one at time on a flat surface and press down on the pod with the ball of your thumb to snap it open.
    6. 6
      Pull the pod away from the seeds inside and discard it. Set the seeds aside. Place the roasted cinamon sticks between the 2 layers of a folded linen towel and pound them with a rolling pin or a kitchen mallet until they are finely crushed.
    7. 7
      Combine the cardamom seeds, crushed cinnamon, cloves, cumin seeds, coriander seeds and peppercorns in a small pan or bowl and stir them together until they are well mixed.
    8. 8
      Grind the spices a cup or so at a time by pouring them into the jar of an electric blender and blending at high speed for 2 or 3 minutes, until they are completely pulverized and become a smooth powder.
    9. 9
      If the machine clogs and stops, turn it off, stir the spices once or twice, then continue blending.
    10. 10
      As each cupful of the spices is grounded, transfer it to a jar or bottle with a tightly fitting lid.
    11. 11
      Garam Masala may be stored at room temperature in an airtight container, and will retain its full flavor for 5 to 6 months.

      This certainly is much better than the commercial spice available here.
