Fragrant Curry Powder

This entry is filed under Asian Recipes.


You can’t beat making your own curry powder. It’s worth making just for the aroma wafting through your home. But the end result is a jarful of fragrant spice, guaranteed to zip up your food in a subtle but distinctive way. 

For starters, try adding a spoonful to my Singapore noodles – the end result is an amazingly authentic taste.

More good news – this versatile powder (suitable for all curries) is made in minutes and will last months, what more could you want?

2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp dried chilli flakes
1 tsp peppercorns
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon

Here’s What You Do:
Snap off the clove heads and tip into a frying pan with the chilli flakes, peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds. Dry roast over a medium heat until fragrant.

Grind the seeds to a powder using a spice mill or pestal and mortar before mixing with the remaining ingredients.

Store in an airtight jar.
