Homemade Curry Powder

Curry powder is a combination of a variety of spices.
A few years ago, I came across a recipe for homemade,
and, oh, is it ever good!  I never purchase the premixed powder these days.
If I run out, I just whip up a batch.  It's as easy as one-two-three.

Every recipe that calls for curry powder is enhanced by this stuff.  
Give it a try and see if it isn't so!
Original recipe found in Lucy's Cookbook.

4 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp ground coriander
4 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 rounded tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 rounded tsp ground cloves
1/2 rounded tsp ground cardamom

Stir together and store in a glass jar tightly closed.
Use in any recipe that calls for curry powder.  Enjoy!

Many Blessings,

Hello my friend,

Thank you for sharing this recipe for homemade curry powder! I love using curry powder so I will be giving this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing! I have already pinned it to a board on Pinterest. ;-)

I'm going to do the same as my friend - Diana. Pin it!! Because, I honestly had no idea that it was a mixture... and I know that it curry varies and that some are hotter than others... but, I didn't know why. It's not like I use it a lot... but, I would love to have this in my repertoire. Along with my own Taco Seasoning... anyway. Thanks, much!!

I don't think I knew curry was a mixture of spices but as I was thinking about it, the curry powder I get at one store is different from the store brand of another. I'm going to mix up a batch of this soon, I think I might have most of these spices already at hand. Thanks for sharing.
