Homemade curry powder

I often have store-bought curry powder in my pantry, because it's an easy way to get the flavors going for one of my favorite weeknight dishes.

But I’ve also made my own. Most curry powders contain coriander, turmeric and cumin, with ginger, cinnamon and cardamom sometimes added for even more depth. If you want to experiment at home, I’d start with something like this. Feel free to double the recipe and keep the leftovers in a small jar. 

Curry Powder

2 tablespoons ground coriander
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Combine all of the following ingredients in a glass jar or leftover container, then shake well to combine.
