Island Curry Powder
Delicious with the Curried Island Shrimp!
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes


2 teaspoons mustard seed, black
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
2 teaspoons black peppercorns
2 teaspoons anise seed
2 teaspoons fenugreek seed
3 teaspoons coriander seeds
4 teaspoons ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To make your own curry powder, you will need
a small spice grinder, clean coffee grinder or
mortar and pestle. Heat a medium frying pan
over medium-low heat and add the mustard
seeds, cumin, peppercorns, anise, fenugreek and
coriander. Shaking the pan, dry roast the spices
until the mustard seeds turn gray and the spices
become fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool,
then grind to a fine powder. Transfer to a small
bowl and stir in the turmeric and cinnamon.
Measure 2 tablespoons for this recipe; store the
remaining powder tightly sealed in a dark place.
It will keep up to 6 months and can be used
as you would other curry powders.
