This blend is mild, aromatic and tastes amazing. It is perfect for making a mild curry for the boys, adding to a kedgeree or for making my Curried Lemon Butter Shrimp.
It is a slightly sweet and super mild powder. Those who want some spice can add cayenne pepper to the mix. I would start at 1/2 teaspoon and see how you get on. Alternatively add some fresh chilli to your curry. I like to use this to make a mild (and totally inauthentic) chicken and apple curry for the boys. It is also great added to a chicken mayo for a tasty coronation chicken.
Have you ever looked at the jar of curry powder you buy in the supermarket? With so many of them the first ingredient on the list is cereal or maize. Then most have salt in them! It is so easy to make at home without these ingredients!
I measured all the spices out onto a plate so I could get a before shot, Mr 4 said to me “Mum are we just having powder for lunch?” It made me smile 😉
