  1. Wash ingredients and pat dry. 
  2. Roast all ingredients in a dry pan for 8 to 10 minutes over low heat until fragrant. 
  3. Put all the roasted spices in a coffee grinder and mill until fine. 
  4. Store in an airtight container. Use within 6 to 8 months.


You can substitute the Sichuan peppercorns with white peppercorns or use a mixture of Sichuan pepper and white peppercorns. 

Make sure you do not burn the spices. Stir often to prevent them from burning.
