Hey lovely people!
How’re you guys doing? I hope you guys loved the holidays and deeply hated the workload that has hit after. So have I. These chilly weekdays with absolutely nothing in the name of the sun have frozen the sh*t out of me. I hope if there were something that would run a sudden wave of HOTNESS within. Don’t you want it too??
Speaking of Hot, my Asian soul screams a word. A word that I bet none of you can even imagine living without taking at least once a day.
This glazing hot word is ‘Curry’. Being an Indian, curries are something I can die for.
Today my Curry-Lust made me do some research on curry powders. My taste buds called out to the chef in me to cook some chicken curry for my hungry, heat-deprived soul. So, while collecting the ingredients, I found a Jar. The jar was named ‘Curry Powder’ and was as taste deprived as my tasting senses. Thus, this process drew to towards some recipes that helped me embellish the chicken bones dying to be surrounded with something Hot and Spicy!
Okay okay, lemme cut the chase and tell you what I found and my agenda for today. I found 2 curry recipes. One of them was Indian and the other was Jamaican. Both of them, are fairly close to each other, yet different in many ways!
Today, we’ll be talking about how to fabricate Indian Curry Powder and Jamaican Curry Powder from scratch. We’ll also be talking about this Jamaican Indian relationship in terms of Curry Powders.
So, let us get started!

Pro Tip: 1. Do not over roast the whole spices or they’ll get bitter and spoil the overall aroma of the mixture.
2. To make a thick spicy and creamy curry mixture, mix the desired amount of curry powder with freshly extracted milk cream or ‘Malai’. This will add a smooth and creamy texture to your curry.
Also known as Caribbean Curry Powder due to the ingredients used, this Jamaican Curry Seasoning is one of its kind! An exotic blend of aromatic whole spices makes it one of the warmest spices you can opt to add to your recipes when you don’t want to diversify your spice selection. So, let us dive into this spicy journey!
Though it is highly recommended that you toast your spices first and then grind them, if you want, you can skip the step and straightaway grind the spices.

Although the difference in ingredients is evident, there’s a thing that differentiates the Indian variant of curry powder from the Jamaican one. This differentiating factor is the quantity of a specific ingredient used and the ratio of one ingredient used in proportion to the others. The extended hotness or aroma of each varies according to the specific regional ingredients used in the fabrication of these flavor bombs. This is what makes both of them one of a kind as well as incomparable in taste.
So, I hope to hear from you guys trying your hands on these flavorful Indian and hot Jamaican curry powder recipes. Until next time guys, see you soon.
