Colombo Spice Mix
Colombo is a mix of Caribbean spices containing turmeric, cumin, coriander, mustard, ginger, fenugreek, cloves, pepper and saffron. You can use a similar similar curry powder in its place.
Hi beannsw, your best bet for Colombo Powder would be a specialty spice /ingredients shop or instead, to use a similar tasting curry powder as explained in the footnote. Thanks! - 28 Feb 2011
I was just wondering if you're based in AU and if so, where do you get the Colombo spice? Thanks! - 27 Feb 2011
