Basic Curry Powder (Indian Curry)

Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

6   Dried red chiles
25   Coriander seeds - (1 oz)
2 teaspoons 10mlCumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlMustard seeds
1 teaspoon 5mlBlack peppercorns
1 teaspoon 5mlFenugreek seeds
10   Fresh curry leaves
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlGround ginger
1 tablespoon 15mlGround turmeric

Recipe Instructions

This medium-hot curry blend can be used in any dish that calls for curry powder.

Remove the seeds from the chiles. Dry roast the whole spices over a medium heat until they darken, stirring or shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning. Leave to cool, then grind to a powder. Dry roast the curry leaves in the pan for a few minutes, then grind and add them to the mixture with the ginger and turmeric, blending well.

* To make Aromatic Curry Powder, add 1 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves with the ginger and turmeric, and use only 2 or 3 chiles.
