I must tell you that each family, each grocery store will have its own Madras curry recipe and in India some have more than 50 different spices. 

Madras Curry takes its name from the port city of Madras (now Chennai), an ancient British trading post where this mixture took off, attracting gourmets around the world.

The word “curry”, derived from the Tamil “kari” meaning “sauce”, was popularized by British sailors and is now synonymous with the richness of Indian spice blends.

In the West, “curry” is a generic term, but in India, the diversity of “Massalas” illustrates the richness of regional culinary traditions. Madras Curry is a harmony of flavors, a meticulous assembly of ingredients that creates a symphony of taste.

Traditional curry preparation in India is considered an art, with expert “masalchis” accompanying the Maharajahs to compose unique spice blends. With over 50 spices sometimes used, each recipe is a treasured family heirloom.

MADRAS CURRY AND ITS HISTORY

When you buy this spice blend you will take a journey into the world of spices. 

Madras is a staple of Indian cuisine like curry paste in Thai cuisine.

But here, I would like to share his story with you. 

Madras curry, famous for its intensity and richness of flavors, carries with it the heritage of a history rich in cultural exchanges and gastronomic innovations. Let me take you on a discovery of its historical journey:

  • Roots of the term:  “Curry” derives from the Tamil word “kari”, which means “sauce”. This term was generalized by the British to categorize Indian dishes in sauce during their colonial era.
  • British influence:  Masala spice blends captivated the British, who created a milder version to suit their palate and called it “curry”.
  • Recipe Evolution:  Modern curry powder was formulated in the 18th century by Indian traders for British colonists, who then introduced it to Britain.
  • Global expansion:  Curry has crossed borders to establish itself as a staple of international cuisine, reinventing itself within diverse cultures.

Madras curry is therefore a symbol of cultural fusion, a bridge between traditions and modernity. It continues to inspire and seduce gourmets around the world with its exotic nuances and its character deeply rooted in culinary history.
