Crazy for Curry – Pakistani Curry – Shalimar
I'm going to scream this from the mountain top, there's no such thing as 'a curry.' There's six kazillion different kinds of curry. When someone asks how to make chicken curry, I have to ask 'Which one?'Aarti Sequeira.
Pakistani Curry - These curries are typically drier and often contain meat, unlike their Indian counterparts. Pakistan has several regions rich in local spices and the curries vary accordingly, with some regions favoring liberal use of ghee or butter, others using nuts and dried fruits. Pakistani curries are typically served with basmati rice or flatbread like naan or roti.
Curry is a generic description used throughout Western culture to describe a variety of dishes from Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Thai or other Southeast Asian cuisines. The chief spices found in most South Asian curry powders are turmeric, coriander, and cumin; a wide range of additional spices may be included depending on the geographic region and the foods being included (white/red meat, fish, lentils, rice and vegetables). Curry's popularity in recent decades has spread outward from Southern Asia to figure prominently in international cooking. Consequently, each culture has adopted spices in its indigenous cooking to suit its own unique tastes and cultural sensibilities. Curry can therefore be called a pan-Asian or global phenomenon with immense popularity in Thai, British, Japanese and Caribbean cuisines.
