This is my homemade version of a turmeric-forward blend of spices used in Nigerian rice dishes, stews and sauces.
A legacy of British colonial times, it's similar to Caribbean style curry powders - use them as a substitute.
How does this relate to labeled Indian style blends? I think a Madras mix would work
Sometimes, I make this with a combination of whole and ground spices. When I do that, I put the ground spices together and gently toast the whole spices on low - medium heat for 3 - 5 minutes. Then I blend and combine that with the ground spice mix —Kitchen Butterfly
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
