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 Layered Carrots and Rice – Jizer M’tubuq. It is best to buy whole spices and grind them yourself. You can see this recipe made here in this video. This is modified from a recipe found on Recipes by Rachel. 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.

Curry Shopping Tip

Indian food is loaded with many herbs and spices. Make sure you have a stocked spice cabinet and a big appetite.

Curry Cooking Tip

As delicious as Indian food is, the smells are strong and they linger. Make sure to have your stove vents running and a window open if you don't want your furniture to smell like spices for a week.
