Indian Masala Curry Paste

Ingredients

1 tsp saffron threads
1/2 cup coriander seeds
2 tsp anise seeds
2 tsp whole cloves
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp fenugreek seeds
3 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp mustard seeds
1 large onion, minced
4 cloves garlic chopped
fresh hot red peppers to taste

 

  • Soak the saffron threads in a little water and, using a mortar and pestle, grind into a paste.
  • Grind all the remaining ingredients using a mortar and pestle, or combine in a food processor, a little at a time to make a heavy paste.
  • Remove the seeds from the hot peppers unless a very hot curry paste is wanted.
  • Use as directed in recipes.
  • May be stored in a jar refrigerated, but is best used within 3-4 days.
