A Taste From The Past: Curry Spice Mixes by Spicie Foodie | #curry #spices #thai #indian #malaysian

If you were to peek through my kitchen cabinets and refrigerator you would always find plenty of spices, homemade curry mixes and pastes. To me there is something so serene about grinding whole spices and transforming them into aromatic curry mixes. The simple motions of chopping, and mashing herbs for curry pastes is just as comforting to me. I simply could not exist without spice and curry.

Today’s edition of “A Taste From The Past” is all about curry spice mixes. I want to share with you these 4 curry mixes and pastes from my archives. Sometimes all four are in my kitchen, and other times maybe only one and they are always homemade.

Homemade curry spices and pastes taste so much better than store bought. The main reason is that you can control what quality ingredients go into the mix. The store bought ones always have too much salt and filler ingredients which costs the manufacturers less money to produce. Plus if you are like me and like to have more control over the spiciness then homemade curry mixes are the way to go. Enjoy!

Each version looks amazing. I love curry, my hubby could eat it each day. He’ll be very happy if I’ll mix some spices for him ;)

Thank you Marta! My husband is the same way.:)

Hi Nancy! You are so right about making one’s own curry spice mixes. Nothing beats the flavour of a freshly ground curry paste or masala mix.

So true Taruna!:)

It’s true, there’s something basic about pounding the crap out of something and end up with a dish so fragrant and wonderful that you think you’ve stepped over the line into heaven.


10 Spicie Foodie April 14, 2013 at 5:26 PM

Haha, and all that pounding can also be a great stress reliever.:)
