do you at least know to cook the curry powder before blending it into anything else?
Um, NO. Sorry.
I was in a health food store today, and came across a little jar of curry paste. First ingredient was chili peppers.
The crap, I mean curry powder, I buy is called "Badia" brand, made in Miami (I'm in Florida).
Ingredients are: Turmeric, Coriander, Cumin, Fenugreek, Black Pepper, Ginger, Mustard, Fennel Seed, Allspice, and Red Pepper.
I've probably committed some sort of Culinary Crime for sprinkling this stuff, instead of salt, on all sorts of foods.
I should be Severely Fined, or at least Roundly Chastised, for these actions, don't you think?
Well, I live in a 29-yr-old trailer. What else would you expect?
