Indian Curry Spices -  Add Authentic Flavours to
Your Dishes With This Easy-to-Make Mix

This recipe for Indian curry spices is probably the one I make and use most often. Using a blend of traditional spices, it is an excellent all-purpose recipe that can be made in minutes and will add a delicious spiciness to your curries and many other Indian dishes. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 8-9 tablespoons)

4 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp fenugreek seeds
2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika (or regular)
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp turmeric 
2-3 tsp chili powder
2 tsp ginger powder
2 tsp fennel seeds
1-2 tsp sea salt

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the salt, coriander, peppercorns, fennel, cumin and fenugreek
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Add the garlic, turmeric, ginger, paprika and chili. Combine thoroughly

Store your Indian curry seasoning in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: You could dry toast the whole ingredients for a few minutes before cooling and grinding and you'll extract even more flavours. Click here for info, photos and a short video about the toasting and grinding process. (Link opens in new window)

Note: I use a few whole ingredients in this mix which I then grind as I find these add the best taste and aromas. However, if you don't have them whole, just use pre-ground powders and reduce the quantities by half. So, instead of 4 tablespoons of coriander seeds you would use 2 tablespoons of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have by half as well and stir in with the other powders when making.
