Curried Chicken Salad

I had this left over chicken in the refrigerator and it had lost its interest among my household's eaters (me included) so I took the meat off the bone, chopped it up and made a curried chicken salad. Good for this hot weather.

3 or more tablespoons of Tumeric,
1-2 tablespoons of Cumin,
1 teaspoon of Cardamom,
a sprinkle of Garam Masala I happened to have,
Salt and Pepper

What the salad really needed were some golden raisins but I didn't have any, so I used dried peaches, and chopped them into raisin sized bits and added.
