Curry Powder

Rather than buying a pre-made curry powder blend, why not make it yourself? That's what I thought when I read the ingredient list on an expensive bottle of the orange-yellow spice mix. This particular recipe mimicks the Spice Islands brand very closely.


  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 pods cardamom
  • 2 tsp fenugreek
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp mustard
  • 1/8 tsp clove
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cumin

Toast all spices over medium-low heat. Allow to cool then grind.
