Vera’s Yellow Curry Powder
Curry Powder is a generic term for a blend of different spices and is typically made with Red Pepper to give it some heat. On the Intestinal Repair Diet, we want to avoid the nightshade family: tomatoes, potatoes, bell peppers, chili peppers, eggplant and tobacco. This recipe is full of fragrant flavor without the pepper. Keep in airtight container to use in soups, stews and anywhere it says “Seasonings” if desired.
2 Tbsp Coriander
2 Tbsp Cumin
2 tsp Garlic powder
