Description

The commonly used ingredients in curry powder include turmeric, cardamom, chiles, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, fennel seed, fenugreek, mace, nutmeg, red and black pepper, poppy and sesame seeds, saffron, and tamarind.

Curry powder comes in two varieties-standard and "Madras" - which is the spicier of the varieties.
