I have the latter, and I want to make a recipe that calls for the former.

My understanding is that Muchi and Madras, while similar in flavor, originate from different locations. Muchi is from the west coast of India and Madras from the Southern east coat.
Muchi curry powder is spicier than madras, but if I remember correctly both are Anglo-style curry powders - extra heavy on turmeric, cardamom, and other brightly colored, highly aromatic spices.
You could use the muchi powder and just end up with a spicier version of the original recipe; or, you could cut the muchi powder with a mixture of ground cumin and coriander for a less spicy dish.
Thanks to you both! The recipe I have also calls for cumin and coriander, so I think I'll try your suggestion, kathleen440.
mwp can you please tell what recipe you are going to cook
I am planning to make a chicken curry with a coconut-milk sauce. Thanks!
