ingredients

6 dried red chilies
1 ounce coriander seeds
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
10 fresh curry leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground turmeric

directions

This medium-hot curry blend can be used in any dish that calls for curry powder.

Remove the seeds from the chilies. Dry roast the whole spices over a medium heat until they darken, stirring or shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning. Leave to cool, then grind to a powder. Dry roast the curry leaves in the pan for a few minutes, then grind and add them to the mixture with the ginger and turmeric, blending well.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Been looking for easy curry powder recipie as a new challenge as I always use shop bought,which is always lacking in original flavour. This recipie worked well for me,although I will personally add a few more chillies.Thanking U as I now feel more confidant in making authentic indian flavour curry.
