 Curry powder is a mixture of spices of widely varying composition developed by the British during their colonial rule of India.It adds glorious color and incomparable flavor to chicken and seafood curries, and is great for Sunday omelets.

Curry Powder

3/4 cup coriander seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
3/4 cup mustard seeds
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup fennel seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
2 Tbsp celery seeds
15 coins dried ginger
2 Tbsp ground mace
3 cloves dried garlic
2 Tbsp ground turmeric

Position rack in lower third of the oven. Preheat to 300 deg.F Combine coriander, mustard, cumin, fennel, celery, mace, turmeric and cloves in 11 x 8 x 2 glass baking dish. Stir thoroughly. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool completely. Stir in the red peeper flakes, dried ginger and dried garlic. Working in small batches, grind mixture finely in a spice mill, coffee grinder, mini food processor, or blender (mixture ground in a blender will not have as fine a texture). Divide evenly among jars. Seal tightly. Keeps fresh for up to 6 months. Makes five 4-ounce jars. Makes a great gift
