Curry powder is one of those things that I always thought of as mysterious, exotic, and well, something only accomplished chefs used. Turns out, curry powder is pretty easy not only to cook with, but to make at home. And a lot of folks already have the necessary spices in their spice cabinet or they can be found easily at the supermarket. Every curry powder recipe has a slightly different mix, but this is the combination that my husband and I settled on through a lot of trial and error.
- 1 tsp salt [we’re working to eliminate added salt from our diet, and are satisfied with ½ tsp]
- 1 ½ tsp turmeric powder
- ½ tsp chili powder [try to get the Indian kind, although the Mexican kind works too]
- ½ tsp cayenne powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- ½ tsp ground coriander
Mix together, and voila, curry powder!
