Homemade Curry Masala Powder / Curry Masala Powder Recipe

Curry Masala Powder is nothing but a spice powder similar to Garam Masala Powder or chicken masala powder etc. I love this Curry Masala Powder flavor a lot n i used to add it in most of my fry, varuval, sabzis, masala rice etc. If u are my reader for long time u might noticed that :) Really i love this masala powder in my cooking, this not too strong n spicy like Garam Masala powder but gives lots of flavor n unique taste to your dishes. I mostly use store bought Curry Masala Powder either Shakthi or Aachi Brand. When i googled for the recipe i couldn't find the perfect spice powder mix, there's for only Curry Powder recipe which is different from it. But i got the recipe here n also referred the Ingredients list at the back of Store bought masala packet. I added everything in the list except Jathi Kai but the home made curry masala powder was so flavorful n my Potato Fry Tasted awesome with this Masala. Give it a try n let me know h u like it:) Now to the recipe...

  1. Coriander Seeds      1/2 cup or less
  2. Cumin Seeds         2 tbsp
  3. Fennel seeds     3 tbsp
  4. Pepper Corns       1 tsp
  5. Black Mustard seeds     1 tbsp
  6. Dry Red Chili      5no.

roasted spices
  • Heat a pan, dry roast all the ingredients one by one separately for 4-5 minutes or till aroma comes.
  • Coriander seeds,methi seeds,mustard seeds will pop lightly when u roast them, so roast until the popping sound stops.
  • Roast Everything in medium heat, do not stir the spices frequently, just toss them gently.
  • I did not roast turmeric n ginger powder, simply added it while grinding.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for a while n then blend it to a fine powder.
  • If u want, can sieve it and store it in air tight container.
