Curry Powder

2 t cumin seeds
1 1/2 t coriander seeds
2 t fenugreek seeds
3 dried bay leaves
1/2 t celery seeds
3/4 t ground turmeric

In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the cumin, coriander, fenugreek, celery seeds and bay leaves being careful to not let it burn. Toss frequently and remove when it just barely starts to smoke slightly.

Grind in a spice grinder or mortal and pestle until a fine powder, adding in the turmeric at the end.
