(Recipe from Cooking Light magazine, December) This looks to good not to make.Note: To roast spices, heat the whole spices in a dry pan to release their natural volatile oils and bring out their full aroma and flavor. Use a small, heavy skillet. Add the whole spices (roasting ground spices tends to turn them bitter, so is best avoided) and place over a gentle heat. Shake the pan, or stir with a wooden spatula to keep the spices on the move, and toast gently for 2 to 3 minutes. Some spices, including mustard and poppy seeds, "pop" when they are ready; others darken. The essential sign is that the spice becomes aromatic and smells toasty. Tip into a bowl to cook before grinding - preferably with a mortar and pestle. Remember, a coffee grinder can crush most spices, especially tough ones like cinnamon and cloves; clean the grinder afterward by grinding a small piece of bread or a couple of tablespoons of raw rice.
