Also known as Colombo Powder, this blend from the French West Indies lends flavor to the dish of the same name. Colombo is a thick, curry-like stew of lamb, pork or goat that usually contains bonaito and calabaza, Caribbean sweet potato and pumpkin, respectively. Both the stew and the spice trace their roots to Sri Lanka's capitol Colombo, whose inhabitants were brought to the West Indies to work the sugar plantations. Try Poudre de Columbo Carrot Soup for a fun adaptation of the traditional stew. Poudre de Colombo contains cumin, coriander, brown mustard, Tellicherry black pepper, cloves, fenugreek, turmeric and roasted rice as a thickener. This blend is salt free.
