Curry is one of the oldest recorded prepared foods on the planet. Scientists believe they may have found evidence of a 4,000-year-old “proto-curry” in India’s ancient Indus Valley civilization. Traces of cooked ginger and turmeric were found in starch grains in human teeth and a cooking pot found in the ancient town of Farmana, west of Delhi by anthropologists.
Curry or originally Kari, from the Tamil word meaning spiced sauce, which was thought to be a thin, soup-like, spiced dressing served in southern India. The Portuguese discovered India and popularized it after they colonized parts of India. Britain soon followed and brought curry worldwide. Curry would evolve as chillies originally found in Mexico and South America were introduced to Asia.
Defining curry can be a difficult task as there are as many combinations as there are cooks. Curry is now world wide with recipes from Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Ethiopia and every state in India has their own local version. Curry is the UK’s national dish and has become beloved in US as well.
Modern day curry is a blend of spices and chilies including: coriander, cumin seeds, turmeric, ginger, mustard, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and cayenne pepper. Most of us simply buy it from our local grocery store and don’t think twice about it.
