This Homemade Curry Powder is subtly spicy but you can adjust it by the amount of chili pepper you add.
There are a variety of different curry powders out there in the world from a simple 3 spice curry all the way up to 18. The base for all curry powder consists of turmeric, coriander and cumin. I created this one with spices I like the best and it came out spectacularly! What spices would you put in your homemade curry powder?
