Speaking of Indian food (or not ;-) since it's apparently a British addition
to Indian food.) I've learned that I *do* like many curries, where I
originally had problems with curry the first few times I had it (it actually
made me ill), and I'm trying to learn to make my own curry.  I've been doing
research and find that it's a combination of spices, up to as many as 30
different spices, and it now makes sense why I love some curry and hate
others, so I've decided to try and make my own.  I do not tolerate *hot*
anything, so I'll be leaving out peppers and such (I may add some mild chili
powder, but haven't decided), but love coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger,
mace, and a whole range of other spices on the list(s) of spices commonly
used (have never used tumeric  before, so I'll have to see about that one,
and I've never used fenugreek, but I've had food which contained it.) 

Now, I *know* that there are some cooks on this list who make their own
curry powder (and probably their own garam masala as well), so I thought I'd
ask folks to share their favorite curry powder recipes, so I'd have some
places to start from... or what you might recommend by way of proportions
for someone who enjoys the sweet spices more than the hot spices.
