Today I am sharing an Aromatic curry powder from Srilanka .Srilankan curry powder is very easy to make and can be used in many recipes. You just need a few ingredients from your pantry to make this extremely flavorful masala. Chilli is not used in this recipe. All the heat in the masala comes from black pepper.Roasting the spices gives a nice deep flavor.Home made spice powder is always fresh and the best as there are no preservatives. There is a roasted and an unroasted curry powder mix in Srilanka.

What is Spice Powder?

Spice Powder forms an integral part of many cuisines. It is a mix of spice blend that varies from region to region and culture to culture. Flavors vary yet each spice mix has its own charm and enhances the taste of the curries.I love making fresh spice mix at home. Some of them are Garam masala, vangibath masala, pav bhaji masala, curry powder, jirudhana mix to name a few. I am in love with this Srilankan Curry powder now.
