    Just found this on the web....

    The exact spice mixture used varies between producers, and is often considered a trade secret. When making your own Bombay mix, a good place to start spice-wise is:
    • Three parts chilli powder. More if you like hot food, less if you prefer, but don't leave it out altogether.
    • One part coriander (the seed, not the leaf).
    • One part cumin.
    • One part turmeric. Very important, Bombay mix would not be the same without the obnoxious yellow tint.
    • One part salt. Leave this out if you're especially health-conscious.
    • One part sugar. Again, this is optional.
