Homemade Jamaican Curry Powder

Homemade Jamaican Curry Powder

I love making my own spice mixes! This one is so fragrant because the whole seeds are toasted first, then ground. I used this in my Jamaican Butternut Squash and Chickpea Curry!

I also have used this in my Jamaican Curry Chicken recipe!

Ingredients-Whole spices

3 Tbsp Coriander seed

3 Tbsp Cumin seed

1 1/2 tbsp allspice berries

1 1/2 tbsp cloves

1 tbsp mustard seed

1 tbsp star anise

1 tbsp funugreek seed

1 tbsp black peppercorns


Ingredients-Ground spices

4 tbsp turmeric

2 tbsp ginger

2 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

1-2 tbsp chili flakes

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tbsp brown sugar


1.) In a small pan, on low heat, toast the whole spices until fragrant, being careful not to burn them. Using a mortar and pestle, or spice grinder, grind to a powder.

2.) Mix the ground spices together.

3.) Put all the spices in a jar to store.

Feel free to half the recipe, if you know you won’t use it often, although it lasts so long! Enjoy!

As mentioned above, I’ve used this in these recipes below. Link at top of page for recipes.
