Jamaican Curry Powder

Jamaican Curry Powder

Monty 1

"An authentic Jamaican curry powder without hot pepper, which should be added separately to any dish. You can also use powdered versions of any of the ingredients, but for better flavor use whole seed. For authentic Jamaican flavor, you will usually add Scotch Bonnet or Habanero peppers to your recipes. However, if you want to add heat directly to the powder, add 2-4 tablespoons cayenne powder to the mix, depending on your taste."

Grind the spices with the turmeric in a spice grinder. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Awesome curry powder recipe. I no longer purchase curry powder. My only problem is that my mother always takes my entire stash whenever she comes over.

Five stars! The aroma and taste of this recipe as written are wonderful. The proportions, in my opinion, are accurate for an accent to any dish calling for curry. I used a mix of brown and yello...
