This is a long list of ingredients, but well worth the effort.
Add a few drops of oil to a heavy wok and roast the spices till crisp on a mild heat
Some of these roast and burn fast like the coriander seeds and caraway seeds, others may take a bit longer to crisp up
Dry roast the coconut and add to the spice mix.
Top it with the turmeric powder and allow the ingredients to cool to room temperature.
Once they are cooled powder them into a fine blend.
Store in moisture free airtight container for use.
You can do this blend totally without any coconut and then add coconut into the curry if needed as well. This helps to store the spice mix for a longer time.
