Recipe - Curry powder


Curry powder is a very handy ingredient in any kind of Indian cooking. I should say my mother-in-law is a specialist in this. She makes excellent curry powder which can be eaten as a replacement to the spicy powder (karrappodi/gun powder) with ghee. My friends always loved the dishes prepared with this curry powder.


Cumin seeds - 1/4 cup
Chana dal (bengal gram) - 1 cup
Urd dal (black gram) - 1 cup
Coriander seeds - 2 cups
Red chillies - 3 cups
Coconut powder - 2 cups
Tamarind - 250grams or 1/2 a pound
Garlic - 2 whole (optional)
Oil - 1 table spoon


Preaheat the oil in a wok, roast chana dal, urd dal and coriander seeds till half brown

Add red chillies , tamarind and jeera. Roast them for 2 minutes add cocount (if you are using the whole dry coconut) and garlic and turn the stove off.

Allow the mixture to cool and grind it in a mixer/grinder and add salt and coconut (if you are using powder) to the mixture allow the mixture to cool and store it in an airtight container.

Preparation time - 20 minutes
