Indian Curry Powder Recipe - Homemade Curry Powder Recipe



Curry powder is a great one to have on hand. It is completely different from garam masala powder..This one has all the spices added in them and to make a curry you want only this and nothing else..Few days back i was watching some cooking videos on youtube and i came across a video in which they made curry rice. Each country has their own version of curry rice..Japanese has a lot more starch added in them which makes their curry more silky. So i decided to make my version of indian curry powder and use that to make curry rice..Check this link for curry rice..




Even though curry powder is easily available. I wanted to make my own version of curry powder and use that in the curry. This is my version of curry powder and it taste great with meat and vegetables as well..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

  3. This is most likely going to be a stupid question, but here goes anyway:

    After roasting the chillies, did you remove their stems before putting them into the blender or were the stems really meant to be part of the final finished product?
