Sri lankan Curry Powder | Curry Powder | Spice Powder

Sri lankan Curry Powder, a flavorful mix of spices grind together into powder and it's the key spice in many of Sri lankan dishes. I guess that this curry powder is almost similar to the curry powder that are available in India.  Though i haven't tried any curry powder so far, by seen the ingredients list in the curry powder pack, i came to that assumption. If you have tried both the curry powder let me know how it differs in taste.
While searching for the recipe of this curry powder, i noticed that there are quite few variation in the making, i guess it's like our sambar powder, every household have their own recipe. I personally prefer the spice powder without chili, so i can adjust the flavor and spice level according to my taste later in the curries, hence i referred the recipe from here and here.  The curry powder turned out so flavorful and it has very less spice from the pepper corns, so in the curry, you can add more or less chili powder as per your spice level.

  • While roasting the spices, add all the bigger ones first like coriander seed,pepper corns, when it's half done, add all other ingredients, it helps to avoid burning of smaller spices
  • Or roast each spices separately, choose the method that you're convenient .
  • Don't let the spices cool completely, grind when it's hand bearable temperature. It helps to grind quickly.
