About

Curry powder is a mixture of spices of widely varying composition based on South Asian cuisine. Curry powder, and the contemporary English use of the word curry are Western inventions and do not reflect any specific Indian food.

The word curry is widely believed to be a corruption of the Tamil word kari, meaning something like sauce, but it may instead be derived from the French cuire meaning "to cook".

In the western world, curry powder mixtures tend to have a fairly standardized taste, though a great variety of spice mixtures are used in Indian cuisine.

Indian cooks often have readier access to a variety of fresh spices than their foreign counterparts. Some curry cooks will have their own specific mixtures for different recipes. These are often passed down from parent to child.


Ingredients  

Most recipes and producers of curry powder usually include corianderturmericcuminfenugreek, and red pepper in their blends. Depending on the recipe, additional ingredients such asgingergarlicasafoetidafennel seedcarawaycinnamonclovemustard seedgreen cardamomblack cardamommacenutmeglong pepper, and black pepper may also be added.

It should be remembered that curry powder is more of a generic term for blend of different spices. As with many things, curry powder can have more spices added to the mixture, whilst cooking, to suit the tastes of a particular individual.
