  • 2 tablespoons ground turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons ground fenugreek seeds
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons ground curry leaves (optional)

  1. Prep any whole spices by grinding them and then measuring them. Use a very clean coffee grinder, spice grinder, or mortar and pestle.
  2. Combine all ingredients and store in a sealed glass container for 6 months to a year.


* If you’re using whole pods, use green cardamom, rather than black, and discard the shells before grinding the seeds. If you’re using ground spices, green cardamom is the same thing as a standard shaker of cardamom you’ll find in the supermarket.
