MILD CURRY AND ITS HISTORY

Mild curry's journey through history reveals a captivating intrigue, woven through cultural exchange and culinary developments over the centuries. Here is an overview of its origins and development:

  1. Origin of the term: Originally, the word "curry" has its roots in the Tamil "kari", which simply translates to "sauce". This name was popularized by the British to designate sauced dishes from India, during their colonial rule in the region.
  2. British Adaptation: During their colonial rule in India, the British were intrigued by local masala spice blends. To satisfy European palates, they created a milder version of these mixtures, which they named "curry".
  3. Evolution of the mixture: The recipe for curry powder, as we know it today, has its origins in the 18th century. It was developed by Indian merchants for members of the British colonial government and the army upon their return to Britain.
  4. International diffusion: Curry quickly transcended geographical boundaries to become a symbol of global cuisine. Adopted and adapted by different cultures across the globe, it has become an international cultural phenomenon, crossing continents and cultures.

Mild curry therefore represents much more than a simple mixture of spices; it embodies a continuous dialogue between the East and the West, testifying to cultural exchanges and mutual influences. Its rich and complex history continues through cuisines around the world, where it continues to reinvent itself and delight the taste buds with its exotic and captivating flavors.

DO NOT CONFUSE CURRY, CURRY POWDER AND CURRY LEAF

We failed to mention the curry tree, an essential component of Indian cuisine. Indeed, in India, we find caloupilé, a plant belonging to the Rutaceae family, widely used in the preparation of curry in the Kerala region, as well as in other regions where it is abundant, notably in tropical forests. .

The caloupilé is a tree that can reach up to 5 meters in height, with thin leaves of a characteristic dark green.

In Indian cuisine, fresh caloupilé leaves are often added to stews for their distinctive flavor. They can also be used to prepare curry powder. It is important to note that the term "curry" can have different meanings. Traditionally, it refers to a dish in sauce simmered with spices. However, it can also refer to a curry powder, such as Terre Exotique Madras Curry, which is a blend of spices ready to be used to flavor dishes.

In India, we often prefer to use the term "masala", which means "mixture" in Hindi, rather than the word "curry".

Furthermore, curry paste is another variation, consisting of a mixture of spices mixed with a fatty substance such as sesame oil or peanut oil, as well as fresh aromatics.

Finally, curry leaf, from the curry tree (Murraya koenigii), is also widely used in cooking, playing a role similar to that of bay leaf in Western gastronomy, by bringing a subtle and fragrant flavor to dishes.
