APAD 261: Homemade curry powder mix

Indian curry is one of the dishes that make frequent appearance on our meals. I know how an Indian curry is supposed to taste like based on what we usually order from the Indian restaurants. Although we have a wide-selection of authentic Indian restaurants in Phnom Penh, I also try to make it at home from time to time. So, armed with a list culled from a few Indian food bloggers, I went to an Indian provision store to get my spices and ended up hoarding and making what my husband calls a “curry kit”.

My homemade curry powder mix: ground turmeric, cumin, fennel, coriander and fenugreek seeds. And, of course, fresh garlic and coriander leaves are used when cooking Indian curry.

The yellow-orangey colour comes from the turmeric powder.

  1. You are brave to make curry, but then we like our food on the dull side.

  2. I love curries and often grind my own spices. The hubby prefers his hot, however I like them milder so I can taste the blend of spices..
