This is a very flavorful curry powder from Sri Lanka. It has all the typical ingredients in garam masala and curry powders: cinnamon, cloves, fennel, mustard seeds, cumin seeds etc. I thought rice was an unusual addition to the curry powder, but all in all this is a multi purpose masala that can be used in make curries or spice up rice.
