Curry powders can be a marvelous flavoring, depending on the brand and its freshness. My preferred blend is called, and sometimes labeled, Madras Curry Powder. It's usually a well-balanced mixture of curry leaves, turmeric, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, chiles, bay leaves, fenugreek, allspice, and black pepper. Shop for it in Indian markets, where turnover is rapid.
