2 tsp Cumin Seed
1tsp Cardamom Seed
1/2 tsp Whole allspice
1 tsp fenugreek seed
1 tsp coriander seed
8 whole cloves
1 tsp black peppercorns
5 tsp red pepper flakes (use more or less depending on 
                         how hot you like your food - I 
                         find this amount about right for us)
1 tsp grated ginger (or 1/2 tsp dried)
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp paprika
