  • Red chili powder- 1 tsp

  • Combine all ingredients and grind them into smooth powder.
  • Store this spice mixture in airtight container in cool dry place.

In which dishes this Curry Powder is used ?
This curry powder used in Malaysian, Thai, Singaporean and also in some Chinese & Japanese dishes.
Curry powder is used to flavor soups and stews, and is great for adding a kick to all kinds of sauces and marinades, as well as meatloaf and burgers, and chicken, tuna, pasta and potato salads.

"Curry powder" as we know it was a British invention, not an Indian one, intended to capture the flavor of Indian cooking without the painstaking effort of custom-blending, roasting and grinding spices for every dish prepared. And even more strangely, most curry powder doesn't even contain curry leaves! Curry became a great favorite in Britain at the end of the nineteenth century, and its popularity soon spread to southeast Asia with British empire.
Now Curry is a key element of South and Southeast Asian, Caribbean, Japanese, English and Australian cooking.
