CENTURIES OF CURRY
The origin of this world popular dish is the Indian subcontinent, predating the European occupation of India by at least 4,000 years. The word “curry” comes from the Indian Tamil word, “kari,” which means “sauce” or “relish for rice.” It uses a combination of spices and herbs, traditionally including turmeric, cumin, ginger, chillies, and coriander.
Curry uses fish, poultry, meats, or shellfish, sometimes with the addition of vegetables. In South Indian curry dishes, coconut milk or coconut cream is used to enrich the base of the curry.
Keep your spices tightly covered and store them in a cool, dry place. Whole spices stay fresh for up to 2 years while ground spices have a 6‑month shelf life. Pro tip: red spices such as paprika and red pepper can be stored in the refrigerator to hold their color and keep their flavor longer. Keep away from sunlight and heat.
