    Hi beannsw, your best bet for Colombo Powder would be a specialty spice /ingredients shop or instead, to use a similar tasting curry powder as explained in the footnote. Thanks!  -  28 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)

    I was just wondering if you're based in AU and if so, where do you get the Colombo spice? Thanks!  -  27 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
