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.
