Use this spice yield & conversion chart for recipe costing. The same spice from different vendors/makers will yield different spice conversions so the amounts listed here are an estimation based on the average of several varieties.

As much as I prefer fresh herbs, I have trouble finding certain less-popular herbs I need at any local store. Recently, I ordered some powdered spices and herbs: galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass. As you can tell, I'm making Tom Kha (Gai). But I've no idea how to convert "4 lime leaves" into the powdered version I have, or "2 inches" of lemongrass, either. Can you help?

EQ - the dry spice yields/conversions are listed in the table above. If you cannot see them then unfortunately I cannot help you as that may be an issue with your browser. It should display in IE, Chrome, and Firefox browsers.
