a nice one is the older smallest chisinart :
this one is much lighter and runs around on your counter:
the coffee grinder ( for spices now not coffee !) works fine dry.

I've been using this brand for years but only for dry items. But I have to say I keep two around just in case one burns out, not that it burns out easily, but I tend to use it even when making bulk items. Sometimes I'm making desserts that need dry finely ground seeds nuts etc it does it a much better and even job than the mini cuisinart/ food processor.
for small batches of spices I use the mortar and pestle...

I have the same Krups grinder that I use for grinding spices. I've been happy with it.
using this one for grinding spices and dry seeds:

How about using a spinning blade grinder for the spices, then a mortar-and-pestle for the paste?
Yeah I forgot to say even though I have a substantial m&p I don't get any pleasure from grinding spices a mano.

I totally agree, fresh spices ground down for one dish, no hot whizzing blades or steel cut rollers ., no worry about 'Can I grind my Coffee now?' There are so many Pestle and Mortars on the market now, cheap they are.
The Indian way would be with a mortar and pestle.
