Is There a Substitute for Curry Powder?

Q.  I'm making lamb burgers and the recipe calls for curry powder. Is there anything I can substitute for the curry powder?

A.  Ground cumin, one of the spices typically found in curry powder blends, tastes great as a solo spice with lamb burgers. Season the burger patties with a generous shake of ground cumin and a garlic pepper seasoning blend and grill or pan sauté until sizzling-hot. Delicious.
