How to make your own Curry Powder

I don't think I had curry anything as a kid growing up but at
some point in my adult life Ryan and I both decided that we really like curry. It doesn't matter what kind of curry, we think Indian Curries are fabulous (on my list of recipes to perfect) we also just love Thai Curry.

There are a number of recipes here with curry powder:

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry
Curried Lentils over Rice
Curried Cauliflower with Sweet Potato and Black Beans
Spicy Pumpkin Soup
Cauliflower and Curry Soup
Curry Dip

Although I was able to find some pretty decent curry powders to buy that contained all good ingredients......I had to order it I couldn't just go pick it up at the store. One day I was in the middle of making dinner and realized I was out of Curry Powder.....I don't know how I let that happen I buy most everything in bulk and rotate through and don't very often totally run out.

But I did.....it was okay though because I had been thinking about trying to make my own anyway. So I quickly put together a small batch so I could finish making dinner. I was so surprised that it smelled and tasted very much like the powder we liked so well.

Homemade Curry Powder
12 parts turmeric
2 parts Real Salt
6 parts Sucanat
6 parts cumin
3 parts coriander
2 parts white pepper
1 part cayenne
1 part mustard
1 part paprika
1 part ginger
1/4 part fennel
1/2 part allspice
1/2 part garlic

Combine all ingredients and combine well. You can choose how big you want 1 part to be depending on how much you want to make. I usually use a Tablespoon to 1/4 cup. For example is you use a Tablespoon then just put Tablespoon in place of part(s) in the recipe. Simple as that!
