Iraqi Curry Powder

"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 recipe#420598. 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."

    Mmmm! It smells so good. I halved the recipe, but I kept the paprika the same. I also didnt put in as much cayenne. I'll update this when I use it in a recipe. Thanks!

    I loved the "heat" in this from the cayenne! So many commercial curry powders are too bland for me. Thanks for this keeper!

    This is pretty good mashaAllaah! I only made half the recipe, as I had run out of coriander seeds. I used it in your recipe #372093. It was delicious. Dh and kids ate it right up, there were no leftovers! My house smelt like freshly ground spices for days after, which I love. Thanks for the recipe Umm Binat!
