 Ingredients List

  • 6 Dried red chilies
  • 25 g (1 oz) coriander seeds
  • 2 ts Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 ts Mustard seeds
  • 1 ts Black peppercorns
  • 1 ts Fenugreek seeds
  • 10 Fresh curry leaves
  • 1/2 ts Ground ginger
  • 1 tb Ground turmeric


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

Remove the seeds from the chilies. 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 chilies.
