What is a good curry powder substitute?

Answer

A good substitute for curry powder is garam masala, an Indian spice blend. Both curry powder and garam masala are often used to impart a traditional Indian flavor to vegetable or meat stews.

Curry powder often contains spices like cumin, red pepper, turmeric and coriander. If a home chef does not have all of these ingredients on hand or he simply does not have the time to make his own curry powder, he can substitute the spice blend known as garam masala. This mix of spices does not have an identical flavor to curry powder, but it does contain similar ingredients, such as coriander. A cook can experiment with different blends to approximate an authentic curry flavor.
