What is curry powder?

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 may instead be derived from the French cuire meaning "to cook".

In the Western world, curry powder mixtures tend to have a reasonably standardized taste, though many spice mixtures are used in Indian cuisine.

Indian cooks often have readier access to 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 coriander, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, and red pepper in their blends. Depending on the recipe, additional ingredients such as ginger, garlic, asafoetida, fennel seed, caraway, cinnamon, clove, mustard seed, green cardamom, black cardamom, mace, nutmeg, long pepper, and black pepper may also be added.

Curry powder is a generic term for a blend of different spices. As with many things, curry powder can have more spices added to the mixture while cooking to suit the tastes of a particular individual.
