These ingredients play well together, but the missing "aha" ingredient that people are needing is ginger. Use fresh grated ginger and some dry ginger to give much more sparkle to this. If you are so inclined to take the extra time and energy, grind your cumin seeds, cloves, and black pepper together yourself in a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. If you have coriander seeds, grind those fresh too, as they add much to the curry flavor. Curry powders are not created equally and even after a couple months of being open, they have lost a lot of their strength and WOW factor for cooking. This is an excellent mixture to stuff whole squashes with for holiday meal presentations, it just needs a little experimentation and you will enjoy the results. If you add currants, a little chopped fresh cilantro and a sprinkle of cashews over the top, it becomes almost Middle Eastern in character.
