Homemade curry powder

I was on a cleaning spree and cleaned up my pantry and fridge. I saw that there was a loner in the fridge, a big green capsicum. I then quickly made this sabzi with homemade curry powder/ podi potta kaai which tastes yummy and delicious. You can make the powder and store it for a few days (approx.15 days) in the fridge. The method to make this delicious curry powder is very simple and is as follows.



Ingredients:

Corriander Seeds - 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Black pepper - 10 count
Dry Red chillies - 5-6
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Chana Dal - 1 tsp
Poppy seeds / Khus Khus- 1 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1/2tbsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Cloves - 2 
Dry coconut/ Copra - 3 tbsp
Fenugreek / Methi seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 7-8

Method:

  • Dry roast all these ingredients until a nice aroma comes out.
  • Cool them and grind them to a medium coarse powder.
  • Add it to vegetables like capsicum, potato, brinjal/ eggplant and serve with Rasam rice.
  • Enjoy!!!
