About curry powder
Curry powder is a complicated blend of up to 20 spices, seeds and herbs.
The bright yellow color comes from turmeric.
There are as many blends of curry powder as there are regions in India.
Packaged curry powders, while not as interesting as a special personal blend, work fine for most recipes. They come in standard and Madras style, which is the hotter of the two.
Select a good quality standard curry powder for your recipes.
Curry powder loses its strength quickly, so keep it in a dark place to preserve it.
