What is Curry

curry-sm.jpg (11358 bytes)

Curry is now an international dish recognised the world over.   It is a dish with gravy (or is a stew like dish) and had many spices and seasonings and is flavored with hot and sour tastes.

Curry may or may not be made with curry powder.  Curry powder available in the supermarket is not a single spice but a blend of spice. Curries are made with many many spice blends. Some curry powder ingredients are: black pepper, chile pepper, cloves, coriander, fenugreek, cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, ginger tumeric and nutmeg. You can mix your own curry powder according to your tastes or buy it ready mixed in the spice aisle of your grocery store.

The classic Indian curry often combines the following spices, coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, cloves, ginger, red and black pepper as well as other spices. One popular variety of spice blend used in Indian curries is called "Garam Masala".

A ‘dry’ curry simply means that there is less liquid involved in the cooking process than you would normally associate with a curry.

Although Curry is not an Indian word - it has come to represent the varied dishes that are stew like or a soupy.  These dishes are cooked in steps with the following seasonings which are called masalas
1.  A base of spices sautéed in ghee or oil
2.  herbs and seasonings like curry leaves or fenugreek may also be added
3.  A secondary level of seasonings are added and include all or some of the following – a mixture of onion, garlic, ginger, and tomatoes
4.  A third level may include coconut milk, almonds, cashews or cream
5.  All curries have a sour taste which may be achieves with lime juice, tamarind, mango powder, kokum or yogurt
