Or the easy way out, to be more specific.
At one teaspoon of mustard and half a teaspoon of cumin, there was no way I could use the grinder to powder this - even my coffee grinders, now defunct, wouldn't have worked. I have a small pestle and mortar but they are very heavy and I didn't feel like washing even the pestle. So I took a napkin, spread the roasted spices on one side, covered it with the rest of the napkin and pounded away at them for a few minutes. This is the second time I'm doing this and it's not a bad idea.
