For making the Lankan Curry, I had to make this curry powder. This is a very flavoursome spice blend, that is used in different dishes, including the non vegetarian dishes.

Heat a pan, dry roast the Raw Rice for about 3 minutes till it turns golden colour, remove the rice to a plate. 

Then add other spices one by one, continue roasting. Roast the spices till they turn almost brown. Cool the roasted spices and grind along with roasted rice into a very fine powder.

Store the Curry Powder in a dry air tight jar, It keeps well for 3 months.
