Can I use an electric coffee mill to grind whole spices ?


I have a small electric coffee mill and am wondering if it is suitable to grind my spices when required by a recipe ?

Yes, that’s what we use. I have a small one which grinds more than enough for a few curry meals. For those who don’t yet have one, try to get one that’s not too large and you will really notice the difference if you grind your spices freshly and regularly.

And then clean it out with ordinary rice (not your best Basmati !!). Just pour enough rice in to cover the grinding mechanism, grind the rice and throw away. Wipe out the bowl with a paper towel and there you are. This also works well if you have been grinding nuts etc.

See the variety of Spice and Coffee Grinders at The Kitchenware Market
