Nyonya Curry Powder

As i told earlier in my previous post, this week's theme for my long blogging marathon is Streetfoods/Condiments, yesterday was streetfood and today am posting an interesting curry powder under condiments. This nyonya curry powder is used in Malaysian cuisine for making their famous Nyonya chicken curry. When i chose condiments as today's theme, i went on searching for a spice powder and finally i found this new curry powder at Malaysian Delicacies. Immediately i went through this curry powder, seriously i was shocked to see that this curry powder goes for your usual Indian spices.

Nyonya cuisine is the result of two cuisines, the chinese immigrants and local Malays, which gives this fantastic cuisine,this cuisine use local ingredients like chillies, shrimp paste, lemongrass, galangal etc. Nyonya peoples prefer making their curry powders or pastes themselves. This curry powder is an exemple from their collection of flavourful spice powders.With this curry powder, you can make a fingerlicking,flavourful chicken curry. Yes i prepared their Nyonya chicken curry and we enjoyed it thoroughly.


3tbsp Coriander seeds
2tbsp Cumin seeds
1tbsp Fennel seeds
2tsp Peppercorns
2nos Cinnamon sticks
2nos Cardamom pods
5nos Cloves
1tsp Nutmeg powder
2+1/2tbsp Chilly powder
2+1/2tbsp Turmeric powder

Roast the seeds, one by one separately until a nice aroma comes from.

Then in the same pan, dry roast the cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods,cloves, transfer it to a plate,keep aside.

Now in a warm pan, dry roast the nutmeg powder, chilly powder, turmeric powder, add it to the already roasted spices.

Let them cool completely and grind it as bit coarse powder.

Conserve it in an air tightened box or bottle.
