Some of The Spicy Essentials

I have a top drawer of spice essentials; easy access to the things I use the most, I think that its a pretty standard selection of the spices that Indian families use:

You also then have the 'Essential Spice Rack' which is basically what most Indians use almost everyday:

There are other spices that I use a lot, notably Garam masala which my mum mixed up herself.  No two mixes of garam masala are ever the same as everyone always as a secret mix that they use.  However, base the base ingredients are:

Cumin seeds
Coriander seeds
Cardamom pods
Black peppercorns
Cloves, and

All of the above is pretty much ground up and stored for use later.
