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 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.
Replace 1 teaspoon curry powder with 2 tablespoons chicken powder.
True, it is a blend and different blends might work depending on one's tastes. There are lots of recipes/combinations, so research them if you want. I am not much of a curry powder fan either, but I have tried making my own with good results. Chili powder used with a light hand, has worked well for me, I would suggest adapting the flavor profile from Asian to more of a Mexican one, if one does this. I have a recipe that I am going to make next, calling for two tablespoons of curry powder, and one pound of unseasoned ground meat just to give an idea of scale. That seems like a lot of chili powder, so probably not an equivalent substitution. I hope that helps .
If you have the following items.These acts as a good replacement for curry powder
1/2 tsp turmeric 1 tsp ground cumin powder 1/2 tsp ground coriander powder 1/2 red chili powder, to taste

I usually just use curry paste, Indian or Asian curry paste in place of the powder form, and I find it does its job.. Just like you I dont like the powder, I find it over powering, where as the past its gives it a much better aroma and flavour...
