Homemade Curry Powder

I adore curry! The various spices and their individual characteristics work so well together. I normally buy a mixed curry powder from Frontier. However, today I ran out. Since I had most of the spices on hand, the time to experiment with a curry mix had arrived. I added each of the following in parts into a jar and shook it real well. It would probably be better to mix it all in a bowl first then transfer to a jar. There are other possibilities of course, but here’s the mix in parts I used:

Homemade Curry Powder

  • 1/4 part cayenne
  • 1/2 part paprika
  • 1/2 part mustard
  • 1/2 part nutmeg
  • 1 part coriander
  • 1 part cinnamon
  • 1 part cloves
  • 1 part cardamom
  • 2 parts cumin
  • 2 parts ginger
  • 2 parts turmeric
  • 3 parts fenugreek

This was enough for about a pint jar. For less spice, you could leave out the cayenne and just add it to your curry as you cook each time so you can control the heat. Enjoy!
