Toasting whole spices in a dry pan can help to bring out the essential oils and the flavour in the spice, however be careful to taste as you add the spice to your dish as the flavour will have changed and you may need less. Toasting pre-ground spices is a little trickier and it can ruin the flavour of the spice altogether.
Bay leaves are one of the few herbs that don't lose their flavour when dried, rather the flavour is more intense. Can be bought as whole dried leaves or ground and is also popular as a fresh herb.
