The word “curry” is thought to derive from the South Indian Tamil. It is generally used to describe any spiced, saucy dish, best knows in Indian, Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi, Indonesian, Malaysian, Thai and other South Asian and Southeast Asian countries.
The common misconception is that a curry is a hot and spicy dish. Of course some curries are extremely hot, but on the whole most recipes are a balanced blend of spices and herbs with a delicate and highly sophisticated flavour.
We know and love curries that come from different countries around the word. Whatever its origins, a curry usually contains a selection of fresh and dried herbs and spices. Depending on the dish, other ingredients could include chillies, curry leaves, ginger, garlic, shallots, lemon grass, coconut milk, palm sugar – the list goes on.
