Curry Powder: Just How Authentic Is It?

puppymomma | | Apr 30, 2007 05:50 AM

I have an aversion to McCormick curry powder. I refuse to use it. I will use their Madras Red Curry Powder.

But on the occasions that I've eaten out at Indian restaurants (which I LOVE), I don't taste anything that resembles the stuff. What do Indian people really use? Do they really use "curry powder?"

If they really don't, what can I replace the curry powder ingredient listed in typical recipes with?

I have a feeling I should order something more authentic from Penzys or something. There aren't any Indian markets within 40 minutes of my house, or I'd go to one.
