    Firstly we will prepare a spice sac with the help of muslin cloth. For this cut the muslin cloth in the shape of a square that should be almost 6 inches in length. Now put the crushed cinnamon and cloves in the middle of the cloth and tightly tie this muslin cloth from all the four corners. Make sure the sac is not letting out the flavoring ingredients out from any corner.
