What is deride ginger, please? An explanation in Arabic is fine. Thanks!

When I crush all the above ingredients, I cannot get fine crush. The cardamon shells are still husky and the whole mixture is not powdery.

What do I do? Put all the ingredients together, blend until as small as possible and then sift it to get just the powder?

HELP!! :-)

Thank you

I see, so we're not going for powder here then. Fine a crush as possible I take it? So that theres still some solid bits of cardamom shells and slightly course cloves?

Wish I could see a picture of the spices after crushing. I assume grinding(to powder) and crushing (to as smaller bits as possible) are two different things huh? :)

I'm a terrible cook.. and worse at following instructions.

Thanks Zainab
