Pete and I both like Indian Food. We like curries. Because I have to limit salt, I have found that by using Indian spices you can have a full flavored dish without a lot of salt. This is good. So, I have been making way more curries these days.

I regularly use Whole Foods brand "Muchi Curry Powder" and The Spice Hunter's Garam Masala. Each has itís own unique flavor. For years I used Spice Islands Curry Powder. It contained many varied spices to give the desired taste. I was running out, so I bought some more.

This time I decided to make Beef Curry after buying some beautiful looking beef already cut in small cubes for curry at Marukai Market, a Japanese store in Torrance.

This time I decided to use the Spice Islands. Wrong choice! They have changed it. The old bottle listed these ingredients: Cumin, Coriander, Fenugreek, Ginger, Tumeric, Dill Seed, Black Pepper, Mace, Cardamom, & Cloves.

The new bottle listed only two ingredients. They are Tumeric (as color). & Red Pepper. If I had wanted Red Pepper, I would have bought Red Pepper!

In examining the bottle, I found that the Spice Islands brand has been taken over by the Tone Brothers. Rip off!

Does anyone out there know of a good full flavored Curry Powder?
