Biryani Masala

I am definitely in love with this masala.
 I do not know the name of the author of this post nor the site that I have downloaded this as it was something I did ages ago.  In case you know whose post this was please let me know so that I can link it back.
It is called Mutta/Egg Biryani-Malbar Style. I will post the biryani recipe eventually as in the recent reformatting I have lost all my drafts and have no desire to start typing all over the same stuff again.
As it is I have got my younger kid to volunteer typing out the ingredients and method.
½ tsp fennel seeds( saunf)
½ tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp shajeera/caraway seeds
4 cloves
1 cardamom
1 flat cinnamon (1 inch length)
¼ tsp grated nutmeg
1 whole mace
The recipe says grind everything to fine powder but I have found slightly roasting it give a delicious aroma. The yield is two tea spoons.
