Special Curry Powder

Special Curry Powder

This is a home-made Special Curry Powder that I use for seasoning vegetables in a South Indian style. It usually tastes great with vegetables like Eggplant, Potatoes, Green Raw Bananas (Plantains) and Fresh Okra. However, I guess it can be used to flavor any vegetable or any dish for that matter. It is aromatic and spicy, and you can control how hot it will be by reducing or increasing the Red Chillies.
