Homemade Curry Powder is a savory spice blend that is easy to make. It’s perfect to use in soups, pastas, rice dishes, salads and more.
Curry is one of the most popular spice blends in our house. I use it on an almost weekly basis. Whether I am making Chicken Curry, Curry Chicken Salad or Curried Chickpeas , we go through a lot of curry powder around here. This got me thinking, I wonder if I could make it on my own?
Making your own spice blends is actually quite an easy thing to do. And it is great because you can add or leave out anything that you want to adjust it to your own tastes. Having your own spice blends on hand also makes dinners a breeze because you don’t have to measure out all of the separate spices.
And in the case of curry, that’s a real time saver!
When looking to make my own spice blend, I always check out the back of a lot of my favorite blends to see what is in them. Once you know you can mess with the amounts to suit your personal tastes.
To avoid having to toast the spices, thus making this homemade curry powder even easier to make, all of the spices you’ll use (except Dill Weed) in this recipe are ground.
Making your own spice blends could not be easier. Once you have all of your spices measured out, whisk them together in a bowl and you’re good to go. Easy peasy!
You can store them in spice jars, small mason jars actually work very well too. Just make sure that it is air tight so that the flavors last longer. The spice blend won’t “go bad” but it will lose flavor over time. That said, this blend should last for several months in the pantry.
This Homemade Curry Powder is good in so many different recipes. Come holiday time, it also makes a great gift!
