Curry Powder. No. 2


  • 13 ounces of coriander seed*
  • 2 ounces of fenugreek seed* (if not liked this may be omitted)
  • 1 ounce of cayenne pepper or powdered capsicums
  • 6 ounces of pale-coloured turmeric*
  • 5 ounces of black pepper


Pound the whole very fine; set it in a Dutch oven before the fire to dry, turning it often; when cold put it into a dry bottle; cork, and keep it in a dry place. So prepared, curry-powder will keep for many years.

The ingredients marked thus * may be procured at Apothecaries' Hall, or at any wholesale chemist's.
