Learn how to make curry powder at home. This warm and hearty spice blend is great for sauces, soups, marinades, and more.
Spices are my best friend when it comes to cooking paleo and Whole30. They add so much flavor and give the dish life, plus making your own spice blend at home saves you money, especially if you use it a lot. Another great thing about making your own curry powder at home is that if you don’t like a certain ingredient, leave it out. Customize your spice blend to meet your needs, which is exactly what I did with this blend. I chose what I liked about a typical curry powder found in a store, and I added a little bit more heat and removed spices that I don’t like cooking with.
What tools you’ll need:
- measuring spoons
- small bowl
- 4-ounce jar to store your curry powder
