Many Iraqi recipes call for curry powder and this is the way I make it. An example of a recipe I use this in often is Layered Carrots and Rice – Jizer M’tubuq. It is best to buy whole spices and grind them yourself. You can see this recipe made here in this cute video on Youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS_xOd2CBo. Modified from a recipe found on www.recipesbyrachel.com. I think I cut down the cayenne pepper powder even more as we do not like heat. Feel free to do that also. It is still flavourful.
- Blend together as many freshly ground spices in the ingredients list as you can get and mix with the rest of them pre-ground.
- Taste and if you like and add more cayenne depending how spicy you like it.
