Homemade Curry Powder

This Homemade Curry Powder is subtly spicy that adds a creamy quality to any curry dish.


There is a vast array of curry powders out there from a simple 3-spice curry all the way up to an 18-spice version. The base for all curry powder consists of turmeric, coriander and cumin.  I created this one with spices I like the best and I think it came out spectacular!  What spices would you put in your homemade curry powder?


 Homemade Curry Powder

Recipe: Approx. 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons

  • 2 Tablespoons Turmeric Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Coriander Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin Seeds
  • 2 Teaspoons Fenugreek Seeds
  • 2 Teaspoons Chili Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon Fennel Seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon Yellow Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Peppercorn

Put everything in a saute pan except the turmeric powder on medium-high heat and stir for 8 – 10 minute.

When it becomes very fragrant add the turmeric powder for 30 seconds.

 Remove from heat and cool.  Transfer to spice grinder (I used my coffee grinder) and grind to a fine powder.  It is ready to use.
