Homemade Curry Spice

Making your own curry is a great way to add loads of flavour to your food and keeps you in control, so you’re not accidentally consuming extra salt, sugar, and fillers that often come in pre-made spice mixes. Here is a fantastic recipe for curry spice that you can keep in your cupboard to use again and again! (Oh, and stay tuned for next week’s recipe where you’ll use this curry spice to make Jamaican Curry Chicken!)



·       1 oz Ground Coriander

·       1 oz Turmeric Powder

·       1 oz Ground Fenugreek

·       1 oz Ginger Powder

·       1 oz Black Pepper

·       ¼ tsp Cinnamon Powder

·       1 tsp Dried Thyme

·       5 Cardamom Pods

·       ¼ tsp Mustard Seeds



·       Using a scale, weigh and combine the first 5 ingredients

·       Add the Cinnamon & Thyme

·       In a small pan toast the Cardamom. You will know it done when it slightly turns a golden colour and by the smell (toasty.) Constantly shake the pan so the cardamom toasts on all sides and does not burn (just a few minutes.)

·       Turn off the heat and add the mustard seeds. Cover and keep shaking until they start to pop. (They will pop like popcorn.)

·       Remove from pan and grind (Bullets work great for grinding!)

·       Place the powder in a mesh strainer add the powder to your spice blend. This step will prevent large pieces of the cardamom shell getting into your blend.

·       Combine all ingredients, cover and enjoy!
