Iraqi Curry Powder
8 mins (prep 8)
5 ingredients
1 servings
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 cute video on Youtube, Modified from a recipe found on 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.
