Recipe by Sharon123

This is a variation on Indian garam masala, enjoyed in the Seychelles traditional coconut fish curry. The heat is fairly mild, but can be quite hot if you add more chili powder. Great in curries or on fish. The Seychelles are a group of 115 islands, only a few inhabited, in the Indian Ocean that lie off the coast of East Africa, northeast of Madagascar. Recipe adapted from Global Table Adventure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the spice mix, toast all the whole spices in a clean, dry skillet until fragrant and you catch sight of the first whisps of smoke… about a minute, stirring constantly so they don't burn.
  2. Use a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle to grind them up into a fine powder, then mix them with the chili powder and ground nutmeg.
  3. Keep in a tightly covered jar.
