I wouldn't mind having a recipe for that yellow, supermarket curry powder. A number of Danish recipes use it. It wouldn't work with a more authentic curry powder.
This is my version of homemade yellow curry powder (just omit the fenugreek)


Curry Powder
2 tbsps of cumin seeds
2 tbsps of fenugreek
1 and a half tsps of mustard seeds (brown)
1 tbsp of black peppercorns
8 tbsps of coriander seeds
1 tbsp of poppy seeds
1 tbsp of ground ginger
2 tsps of hot chilli powder
4 tbsps of ground turmeric
1 tbsp of paprika

Using a blender grind the first 6 ingredients to a fine powder. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Store in an airtight container for 3-4 months. The flavour will dull when it gets older but it can still be used.

I think that one might be a bit "too authentic". I know the stuff I'm talking about should be less hot than that.

Sorry
It's my personal blend, I like this combo of flavours. I only buy curry powder to make my pantry look fuller. I think my bought box expired a few years back!

Any canned pet food is disgusting to look at as well as to smell.

Human food .. only 2 come to mind .. sauerkraut and anchovies

Brussels sprouts and liver. Blech. I won't eat them either. Don't much care for the smell of other brassicas either, but they're at least edible. Stinky fish.

I brought home a durian once when we were in Philly. None of us had ever heard of it before. Cut it open, then immediately moved it to the outdoor deck. From there, heavily wrapped in garbage bags, then into the trash. Admittedly, it does TASTE much better than Brussels sprouts or liver.

Brassicas? I had to Google that one
That's a food term I have not heard or read until now. Cool. I learned something.

I shopped for wet canned cat food until I found one I didn't mind smelling...that's what the cats eat.

And it REALLY stinks! Doesn't taste too bad, sorta like tapioca pudding. They've banned it from public transportation in some countries. We saw it in an Oriental market, and I just had to buy it. No-one else wanted to taste it after I cut it open....

Glad your vocab was broadened, Pac, and you can impress your friends with your new word!
