 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      cloves        garlic
    2                    fresh hot red chilies
      1/8  tsp           ground turmeric

 Colombo is a type of curry found in the Caribbean islands of  Martinique and 
 Guadeloupe. Although called a powder, this recipe,  based on one in The Best 
 of Caribbean Cooking by Elisabeth Lambert  Ortiz, is in fact a paste.
 
 Peel and crush the garlic; remove the seeds from the chilies and  mash. 
 Combine all the ingredients and mix to a paste. Store in the  refrigerator for 
 up to 6 weeks.
