May I interrupt a streak of Mexican dishes to bring you something a little more exotic? Like homemade curry powder!
First, I highly recommend you get a coffee grinder. Or a second coffee grinder if you happen to use yours for coffee. If you’ve never used one, it’s like a super-strong mini food processor. A friend of mine told me that cumin is tons better when you buy the whole seeds, toast them in a skillet, and buzz them in a grinder. That’s next on my list. (By the way, if you use a coffee grinder for coffee, don’t use it to blend spices. I’m not sure why, because the pieces go in the dishwasher, but that’s what they recommend. I’m just sayin’.)
When I saw this curry recipe on 101 Cookbooks and realized I already had most of the ingredients, I knew it would be the one to christen my grinder. Did you know that curry isn’t a single spice, but a spice blend?
You can find my custom seasoning blends in the Spice Blends section of my recipes index!
