Curry powder is a spice made up of a collection of spices (including coriander, cumin, Cloves, fenugreek, Cayenne Pepper, cinnamon, and turmeric) that is similar to garam masala. However, it is said to be closer to a derived spice, sambar powder (sambar podi in Hindi) that may contain raw rice and roasted mustard. It is considered the universal (all-purpose) powder for making curry, despite the strong opposition against the existence of universal curry powder. Note that when making curry powder from scratch, its level of spiciness and pungent flavor may differ depending on the type of blend and vender.
