The joy of making and enjoying curries
Curry is the first Indian food item that is recognized by food lovers across the world. Curry is a very general term that refers to the gravy made with lentils and vegetables/meat that is enjoyed with breads like roti or naan and with cooked rice or biriyanis.
How the name curry evolved
The term could have been a modification of the Tamil word ‘Kaari’ for watery gravy or it must have got the name from the vessel ‘Karahi’ – the Indian cast-iron wok used to cook the sauce. Or else, if Westerners are to be believed, it has derived from the French word for cooking – ‘Cuire’.
Today, the world over, cooked spicy, runny sauces are called the Curry and it can be made with lentils mixed with spices and with meat, fish, poultry and of course, vegetables or pulses.
How to make the best curry
In India, virtually no meal is complete without some or the other curry. It can be ubiquitous ‘Sambar’ or ‘Dal curry’ or more elaborate ones like the Vindaloo or Butter Chicken. What is common to all the curries is the liberal use of spices and spice mixes to give them their flavor and piquancy.
Swamis Sambar spice mix is perfect to make the best tasting Sambar, preferred by Keralites. You could also try your hand at making steaming hot ‘Rasam’ which is a great accompaniment for rice in any ‘Sadhya’ (Kerala’s traditional vegetarian thali on a banana leaf).
Enjoy curries with family
So, get ready to enjoy tasty aromatic and delicious Indian curries that are embodiments of flavor and richness. The specialty of curry is that there are as many varieties and ways of making them as there are ethnicities and regions across the country.
The curry of each place presents the style of making, the inclusion of ingredients commonly available there and keeps evolving over the ages. It is more than a food and is rather an emotion of warmth and feeling.
The very thought of your mother’s homemade curry, be it a well-made Sambar or a Rasam with a dash of pure spices and spice mixes from Swamis evokes feelings of home. No human experience can match that.
