Sri Lankan Curry Powder

Event: Blogging Marathon #56
Theme: Condiments
My choice: Sri Lanka

I prepared this curry powder when I made the Sri Lankan curry. This is one flavorful, aromatic spice blend from Sri Lanka that gets used in both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes there. It is on the lines of Indian garam masala and obviously we loved it when I used it in the Sri Lankan curry that I posted a couple of weeks ago. Apart from curries, I am seeing it's potential in jazzing up rice dishes as well.

1 tbsp. rice
2 tsp. coriander seeds
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. fennel seeds
1/2 tsp. black pepper corns
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp. mustard seeds

2 cardamom pods
3 dried red chilli
3 inch cinnamon stick
10 curry leaves
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
* Dry roast the rice until it turns golden in color and transfer on to a plate.
* Dry roast all the other ingredients individually except turmeric until fragrant or until they change one or two shades darker. Roast on low flame and stick around since the spices burn quickly. If any of the spices is burnt while roasting, discard them and start with the fresh ones.
* Let them cool and grind all the ingredients together into a fine powder.
* Store the spice powder in airtight container and use as needed.
