    are you following a recipe?

    i usually make savoury mince and with 500g mince, 300-500g veg and 1/4 cup water i would only put in 2 tsp curry pdr if i didnt want it spicy. dh and i like spicy food so i put more than that in normally.

    but i dont know what your making so its hard to give you help on how much to use.

    I don't find curry powder makes it hot, it's the other things you put in it. I like hot curries so I personally add as much chillis as DF will allow me (1 green chilli max - booooring)
    If you don't want it too hot then I'd say he curry powder alone will be fine for you.

    Agree with Bell&Bug - I find it's not usually the curry powder, it's other things like chillies that make it really hot.

    I'm another one who likes it hot, but for my son's first curry I added two tsp curry powder and two tsp of tumeric to one can (aprox 400ml) of coconut milk. It wasn't spicy in the least, just had a mild curry flavor.

    I find for first timers or babies Garam Marsala is milder but still a nice flavor, DS loves it!
