Roasted Spicy Curry Paste


  • 6 tbs roasted coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp roasted anise seeds
  • 1 tsp roasted whole cloves
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp roasted fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tsp roasted black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp roasted mustard seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 Habanero pepper chopped (if you like it super spicy leave the seeds in)
  • Water as needed
This technique will allow you to make you own homemade curry paste. Roasting the spices brings our a full rich flavor. You can make it in advance and store it in the refrigerator to use as needed.

  • Add coriander, cloves, anise seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, and mustard seeds to a dry pan using medium heat and toast, moving around frequently. As soon as you see a little smoke, stir once more and remove from pan.
  • Add all ingredients to a mortar and pestle or puree in a spice grinder or food processor.
  • Add enough water to make a paste if needed.
  • Store an air tight jar.
