Homemade Curry Powder

Making spice blends at home is a great way to take advantage of a well-stocked spice cabinet! This curry blend goes great anywhere you would use commercial curry powder. I plan to use it in a few Indian recipes in the upcoming week, but for tonight, I'm keeping it simple with the spice blend alone.

In a bowl, mix together 1 and 1/2 tablespoons paprika, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon ground fennel seed, 1 teaspoon ground mustard, 1 teaspoon ground red pepper, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric, 1/2 tsp. ground coriander, 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. ground gloves.

The blend will keep in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months. My before photo shows all the lovely spices before blending, so you can get a sense of the wonderful colors involved! One they're all mixed together, they'll look like this:


Cost:
ground fennel seed $3.50
