A curry powder recipe from scratch by a credible chef is welcomed information, as my Japanese friends all buy the packaged roux from the store.  Lucy Waverman provides an ingredient list.

Servings: Makes about ¼ cup

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ready In: 10 minutes


2 tablespoons turmeric

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon ground cardamom

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon ground fennel


Combine all spices in a small bowl and stir until uniform. Extra curry powder keeps well in a sealed container.
