Hits 5570 | Created 2007-05-14 | Modified 2008-01-04A curry powder from Brit Spice by Manju Malhi.
Prep time: Couple of minutes
Cooking: Couple of minutes
6 Dried red chillis (or 1 tsp chilli powder - add with the turmeric if using)
1/4 tsp Black peppercorns
2 Small bits of cinnamon (or cassia bark)
2 or 3 Green Cardamoms
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Coriander seeds
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1. Pre-heat a heavy frying pan, and dry cook all the spices except turmeric for a couple of minutes, shaking the pan so they don't burn. Let cool to one side.
2. Grind cooled spices with turmeric in pestle and mortar or coffee grinder (don't use a grinder you use for coffee!).
3. She says to use about 1 teaspoon for a dish for 4 people, but I say use more.
