Homemade Curry Powder

Ingredients

1 1/2 tablespoons Ground coriander ( seeds)
2 teaspoons Turmeric
1 1/2 teaspoons Cumin seed
1 1/2 tablespoons whole Black Peppercorn
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed Red Chile
1/2 teaspoon Cardamom Seeds
1/2 teaspoon whole Cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground Ginger

Preparation

1
Gather all of the whole spices and toast them over low heat in a small skillet. Shake the pan often to move the spices around and be sure they do not burn. Once they begin to smell nice and toasty, remove from heat and let cool a bit.
2
Transfer toasted spices and ground turmeric & ginger to spice grinder/small blender. Grind to a fine powder.
3
Store spice mixture in airtight container in cool dry place.

About

I also like to throw in some mustard seeds and fennel seeds while toasting. Usually I'll use whole dried chiles, broken into pieces in place of crushed red chiles, as well.

Toasting the whole spices before grinding helps to release the oils held inside!
