Curry powder recipe: Few of my recipes call the need of this special home curry powder which we personally at home call Methi podi. Well menthi(fenugreek) isnt the main ingredient and still I am not very much aware why it is called so. However, the following curry powder is used to enhance the taste of all leafy veg dals, Curries, mukkala pulusu ( stew made of vegetables), curries such as Tamarind potato recipe and besan ki sabzi that we usually accompany with poori or roti. So, let’s take a look at How to make curry powder.
