Curry powder is a great spice blend to keep in the cupboard; this is a combination for a simple generic curry powder that can be used in a wide range of recipes.
Altered ingredient amounts. A good basic recipe,very mild. I added 1/4tsp of cayenne pepper to the mix to punch it up a bit. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This worked great for us. I did not have corriander and used peppercorns in place. Very good recipe for a basic curry powder! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This was an amazing mild curry powder. I especially loved that it did not have any of the sweet spices that are put into curry powder nowadays but that really make it taste like garam masala. The only things I changed was substituting prepared dijon mustard (1 tbsp) for the mustard seeds and adding some chilli powder (not mexican kind). When I used the mix in a curry dish, I also added a bay leaf. - 29 Sep 2008
