Sometimes it could be a good idea to grind some spices at home
An Indian spice stash is always brimming with masalas and herbs of many different colours and flavour. Spices play an integral role in elevating the taste of all Indian preparations, beverages included (think: Masala chaas and jaljeera). For years now, most of us have been purchasing readymade masalas from market, but you would be surprised to know that there are many families in India that still prefer grinding their own masalas. Sometimes it could be a good idea to grind some spices at home; you could use a mortar and pestle or simply a blender. It saves risk of adulteration, and the effort of running to the market. Additionally, you can even mix a host of spices together and make your own custom-made spice mix.
