This homemade Curry Powder recipe combines all the best spices for curry into an easy-to-use spice blend perfect for a range of Indian dishes.
We use this curry powder mix in a lot in our Indian dishes, so making up a big jar for the store cupboard makes sense.
It takes just a few minutes to make this DIY curry powder, and then it is always on hand to scoop out when making homemade curries, without having to measure out all the spices every time.
Curry Powder Ingredients
This Indian curry spice recipe uses the following common spices for a curry.
- Ground coriander
- Ground cumin
- Garam masala
- Ground turmeric
- Ground cinnnamon
- Red pepper flakes or Cayenne pepper - you can vary the amount to suit here, depending on whether you want a spicy curry powder or not. I use two teaspoons when making curry powder, but you should add it based on how spicy you like your curry. Remember you can always add more heat later, but it is much more difficult to take it away!
- Ground cardamom
- Ground ginger
- Coarse ground black pepper
