Homemade Curry Powder

I apparently have run out of curry powder. It’s not a spice mix that I use too often, so I haven’t noticed until today when I needed it.


But as I always have many spices on hand, it was easy to make my own homemade curry powder. I used a few different recipes for inspiration, making a mix of the ones that “felt” right.

Here’s my version, which I used for this recipe of Chicken Curry.
