I do not like the taste of curry powder. I have a recipe that calls for the use of this spice. What do you suggest that I can use in place of the curry powder?

Curry powder is a mixture of spices. Do you know what spice in particular you dislike? – Mien Oct 13 '13 at 20:03

Curry powder is a blend of spices to some recipe or merchant's taste, as a convenience. More traditionally, a particular blend of spices would be created for each individual dish, tailored to that dishes idiosyncrasies.

You can research one of many current powder recipes on available, and simply make your own blend without whichever spice or spices it is that you do not enjoy.

That seems like a comment rather than an answer. You should post a recipe for curry that you have tried. Your answer just seems to be a link. – blankip Nov 7 at 6:38
@blankip you miss the point. There is no such thing as one 'curry powder', so you should research one you like. We do not post recipes here in any case. – ElendilTheTall Nov 7 at 10:11

While this is a good all-purpose curry powder replacement, it is such a good replacement that someone who doesn't like curry powder probably won't like this either. – SourDoh Nov 6 '13 at 19:38

Replace 1 teaspoon curry powder with 2 tablespoons chicken powder.
