African-inspired spiced

When you mention the Sundowner Celebration to most Walt Disney World enthusiasts, the first thoughts are likely going to be around the variety of dance experiences that take place in Harambe and Anandapur. While this may not be what they remember most, the loud music is sure to leave a lasting impression. However, for the more nuanced palates, there are a ton of food demonstrations that take place. There are foods you can eat, such as amped up hot dogs, and foods you can prepare. Today we’re looking at one of the latter.

On of Harambe’s demonstration stations provided the story of curry. As you are learning about the history and the ins and out of curries, that can be as individual as the person preparing it, you are given a recipe to get you started back home. If you’re dubious of an off the street curry recipe, fear not, this curry mixture comes from Harambe’s most noteable eatery, Tusker House.

In case you missed the Sundowner Celebration, or can’t stop by Tusker House any time soon, here’s a copy of the recipe for your home culinary creations!

¾ Cup Ground Turmeric
2 Tbsp Whole Cumin Seeds (toasted)
2 Tbsp Whole Cardamom Seeds (toasted)
2 Tbsp Whole Coriander Seeds (toasted)
1 Tbsp Dry Mustard
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Salt
½ Tsp Ginger
½ Tsp Black Pepper

Toast the seeds over very low heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the ground spices and salt.
Let cool.
Store in air-tight container.
Grind or use a mortar and pestle when ready to use.
