    The Curry Thread

    Curry...

    Curry is a generic description used throughout European culture to describe a general variety of spiced dishes, best known in South Asian cuisines, especially Indian cuisine. Although there is no one specific attribute that marks a dish as "curry", some distinctive spices used in many curry dishes include turmeric, cumin, coriander, fenugreek, and red pepper.


    In most South Indian languages, the word literally means 'side-dish', which can be eaten along with a main dish like rice or bread.
    Curry's popularity in recent decades has spread outward from the Indian subcontinent to figure prominently in international cuisine. Consequently, each culture has adopted spices in its indigenous cooking to suit its own unique tastes and cultural sensibilities.


    Here we discuss Curry as a whole. What have you used curry for and has it worked or not? etc.

    Re: The Curry Thread

    I love how there are so many variation of curries around the world. I usually eat Japanese style curry at home, and it's one of the few meals I can cook successfully. :P It's usually served with carrots, onions, peas, chicken, and rice.

    Okay, now I'm hungry!

    Re: The Curry Thread

    Japanese curry tends to be a bit sweeter, in my view. Generally prefer the indian curry, the spices can just make you cry sometimes, that's what makes indian curry richer. And most of the time, you can't figure what goes into the gravy.

    Re: The Curry Thread

    I was actually thinking of doing some curry today but I'm really unsure of what to do.
    Either like, Curry stew with lamb or Korma curry with chicken.
    Anyone tried making that and got some tips on which one is the simplest?

    See, that's why I love Japanese curry. I'm terrible with spicy foods! Though I also do love a curry with coconut milk in it.

    Re: The Curry Thread

    can I haz curry?
    just had some selfmade chicken curry last saturday and while I'm sure there are some more delicious variations out there with curry-leaves and such, it was good enough to leave me desire for more. Ergo, curry is really addicting (wasn't that a manga title?)!

    anyway, we didn't use a curry paste - that's thai I believe? - but curry and some of its ingredients as well as onions, carrots and field-garlic for vegetables and yogurt and crème fraîche instead of coconut milk ^^'

    *drools*

    Re: The Curry Thread

    Curry with coconut milk is great indeed

    I'm really bad with specifics in this field. It's so hard to judge which restaurants/ingredients are still original and which ones are just "westernized". Although some still use original recipes and just reduce the spicyness a little.
    I do like the indian curry and thai curry, although I'm not certain if it was the real deal for latter one.

    Re: The Curry Thread

    Coconut milk sounds like a good idea! It would be richer - definitely not something you'd eat every day, though.

    I noticed East Asian curries tend to be not so spicy and are missing a few key ingredients (probably due to lack of availability). I sensed only turmeric and generic curry powder in them at most. Plus, they sometimes add starch to thicken it, which I don't really like.

    More authentic curry would contain garam ("hot") masala, which is a blend of many different spices. Wiki it to learn more. Then you typically add turmeric and red chili powder, at least. Depending on the dish you can add cumin seeds or coriander powder. If you have fresh minced garlic/ginger, even better... Of course, their are thousands of varieties. I happen to only know a few..

    Re: The Curry Thread

    Curry means sauce, and curry spices mean the spices used in curries. For the sake of context it should refer to south Asian spices. Some of these are native to south Asia, whilst others are naturalised in the cuisine such as cayenne pepper. The food can be cooked in the sauce, or the sauce can be prepared separatey.

    Some examples of curry spices are cumin, coriander, cardamon, turmeric, ginger, fenugreek, fennel seed, mustard seed, garlic, cayenne etc. Usually whole seeds as opposed to powders are toasted till they pop in a hot pan first.

    Has anyone else here made curry bread? I made some baked curry bread, I don't often deep fry bread as the Japanese would usually do it.
