Good to Know STORY
Curry, with its ancient origins in Indian cuisine, has evolved into a diverse global phenomenon. The term "curry" doesn't denote a specific dish but rather a category of dishes that vary widely in flavors, ingredients, and preparations.
Popularized by British merchants in the 18th century, commercial curry powder doesn't fully capture the depth of authentic Indian curry, which often relies on freshly ground spices.
Beyond its rich taste, curry offers potential health benefits through ingredients like turmeric, ginger, and garlic. Its global popularity has led to countless regional adaptations, from Japanese katsu curry to Caribbean curry goat, reflecting a fusion of flavors and culinary creativity.
Curry holds cultural significance, being intertwined with familial traditions and communal gatherings, making it a cherished and dynamic dish enjoyed worldwide.
