of Kilifi on the Kenya North Coast. This masala is mildly spiced.

  • 15 gms. teaspoon nutmeg

  • 60 gms. cinnamon

PREPARATION:

  1. Roast coriander seeds, cumin, and fenugreek seeds separately for a few minutes until their rich aroma is given off. Combine with all other ingredients and grind.

  2. Pass the mixture through a sieve and store in an airtight jar.

Yield: about 20 tablespoons.

NOTE: Roasting the ingredients separately is important, since each gives off its characteristic aroma at a different time.
