make it yourself: curry powder

make it yourself: curry powder

This is a recipe I had to make as part of my training at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. This recipe makes about half a cup of curry powder.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons of coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of cardamom seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne (I used 1 teaspoon because I like it spicy)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Spread the spices out onto a pan with parchment paper.

Cook for 20 minutes or until the spices are very fragrant. Check after ten minutes.

Grind spices in a blender or using a mortar and pestle.

I did the latter and it was quite the arm workout. I use the curry powder in curries (of course) stir fry, on tofu and to roast pumpkin or squash seeds.
