Crazy for Curry – Indian Curry - Mayuri
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.
Indian Curry - Curries from India are perhaps the best fit for American vegetarians and vegans because meatless and gluten-free options abound. The spices are a blend of black cardamom, coriander, cumin, black pepper and many other indigenous herbs. Northern Indian curries are often served with a flatbread called naan or saffron rice. Southern Indian curries tend to use more coconut milk and be a little spicier than their northern siblings.
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.
