Basic Curry Powder
August 10, 2015
There are hundreds of recipes that can be used to make a curry powder.
Here I have listed a few that I sometimes use.
You can adapt these recipes to suit your own taste and preferences.
1Place a small dry skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot,
2add the seeds eg cumin, coriander seeds. Toast them overmedium heat, stirring constantly, until they are fragrant--about 30 seconds. Remove skillet from heat and allow seedsto cool completely.
3Once cooled, pour them into a small, dry, nonreactive bowl.Add the remaining spices (eg chilli powder, turmeric) and stir to combine.
4Grind spices in an electric spice grinder or use a mortar and pestle to pulverize them. If any spice husks or large pieces remain,pour the curry powder through a fine-mesh sieve.
5Store your curry powder in an air-tight glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Keep in a cool, dry place.
