Jamaican Curry Powder
September 26, 2016

This is a great recipe and tastes just like the Caribbean curries I had as a kid. I didn't think it would work without the usual Indian aromatics and the large amount of anise struck me as weird, but it actually works! Be sure to add lots of habaneros to the final curry, more than you would think. The curry mix is "sweet" and "high toned" so the heat absorbs well. When making the actual curry I also make sure to briefly fry the powder with browned onion (in addition to initially browning the whole spices when making the powder), which mellows the otherwise raw licorice flavor of the anise. It's not an all purpose curry powder (is there even such a thing?), but it makes a rocking coconut curry that has a definitive Caribbean taste quite different from the Indian variety of curries. Used the recipe many times and even wrote it down!!
