In the video, we used Indian curry powder by Mida's (ingredients: coriander, turmeric, chili, fenugreek, fennel, cumin, anis, ginger, garlic, salt, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves). We got it from Makati Supermarket but it might be available at other supermarkets as well.
We also used garam masala by The Spice Hunter (ingredients: cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cardamom) and curry powder by Morton & Bassett Spices (ingredients: cumin seed, turmeric, fenugreek, fennel, mustard flour, coriander seed, allspice, ginger, black pepper and cayenne pepper). Both are available at Healthy Options.
