This recipe for homemade curry powder recipe is a mild spice blend perfect for meat recipes, stews, and soup.
Curry is a popular dish and is especially popular in the UK. Since curry is a British invention it is not surprising you can find recipes for curry powder in English cookbooks from as early as the 18th century. Curry was made even more popular when it became common knowledge that queen Victoria also loved this dish.
I know there are lots of different recipes out there. Most of them, like mine, contain turmeric, coriander, ginger, pepper, or chili flakes. However, I don't really like the addition of spices like nutmeg and allspice so I decided to try and make my own.
I like to re-use empty spice jars when I make my own spice mixes or use a glass spice jar that I can use again and again.
For this curry powder, you will need
- Ground coriander
- Ground ginger
- Black pepper
- Ground turmeric
- Ground cumin

- 2 tablespoon ground coriander
- 2 tablespoon ground turmeric
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- ½ tablespoon ground cumin

- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Mix all the spices in a small bowl.
- Pour the curry powder into a small ait tight container and store it in a cool, dry, and dark place.
