Indian Curry-Powder

Founded on Dr. Kitchener's Recipe.


  • 1/4 pound of coriander-seed
  • 1/4 pound of turmeric
  • 2 ounces of cinnamon-seed
  • 1/2 ounce of cayenne
  • 1 ounce of mustard
  • 1 ounce of ground ginger
  • 1/2 ounce of allspice
  • 2 ounces of fenugreek-seed


Put all the ingredients in a cool oven, where they should remain one night; then pound them in a mortar, rub them through a sieve, and mix thoroughly together; keep the powder in a bottle, from which the air should be completely excluded.

Note: We have given this recipe for curry-powder, as some persons prefer to make it at home; but that purchased at any respectable shop is, generally speaking, far superior, and, taking all things into consideration, very frequently more economical.
