"My car is broke down and I am out of curry powder to make my curried chicken recipe. I had all of these ingredients on hand but in the ground form already so decided to give it a shot anyway. I loved it! I will never buy curry powder again. Thanks Dancer."
"Here's a tip: When grinding your own spices the flavours are enhanced by briefly "toasting" them first. That is, heating them over the stove in a dry skillet until they begin to brown and their rich aroma begins to be released (but don't overdo it!). Makes grinding them easier too."
"We had this with potato wedges and it was very nice, I will make a curry with what we had left. I think it's nice to make your own as you know exactly what is in it. Thank you for posting. Made for Honor thy mother diabetic forum May 2011."
"Out of 6 of us, we ranged from disliking it to loving it, with a couple of "It needs...something..." This was made with a white sauce recipe from Joy of Cooking, so probably was milder with that. Most really enjoyed it though - had some sweet potato fries with the meal and everyone loved dipping them in the sauce! Definitely has a lot of promise - we may just use it straight up next time to see how the flavor comes through. We'll be keeping this one!"
"This is a nice quick, mild and easy one to whip up. I almost never buy curry powder and needed to throw some together in a hurry today. Being newly addicted to the zaar, thougth I'd give this one a go, and it's great. I'd say this made enough for about 4 dishes. I didn't have any crushed red pepper, so I just used one dried chile instead (would add more but kids don't like too much heat). Thanks!!!"
"This is a really simple and good curry recipe. I just tried it with Recipe # 216242, and it tasted wonderfully. Thank you."
"I usually buy the Japanese curry already made into a bar because it is so easy - well I thought I had one in the cupboard and I am happy to say I didn't. Then I found this recipe - Easy & excellent flavor Thanks Dancer for another winner"
"Thank you for posting! Like another reviewer I was making a dish that called for curry powder, and I didn't have any but I had these ingredients. So simple and wonderful! No reason to buy curry powders again!"
"I've been using this for months and just realized I've never reviewed it ... this is just wonderful. My recipes using curry powder have improved immensely since finding this combination of spices. I have to admit that at times I've used nothing but powdered spices, because I don't have seeds on hand -- and it's still a really wonderful combination of flavors."
"I made a batch of this the other night, and used it for curried chickpeas (recipe 174691), it was delicious. I used pre-ground powders instead of grinding my own (that's all I had)."
"I've made this in 3 "heats" from this mild version to a jalapeno version. A lovely addition to any spice cabinet!"
"Very nice flavour and not over powering like some curries can be. Definatly a keeper. Thanks, Dancer, for a nice addition to my to my spice drawer."
