Should you find yourself in a curry bind, or simply prefer homemade, this quick and easy Indian style Curry Powder is for you! It’s a sodium-free blend that uses individual spices, to elevate your meal. Whenever possible, I make my own spice blends. Pre-packaged versions often contain additives, which sometimes includes dairy. Plus, homemade versions have amazing depth of flavor and a fresher taste.
