Organic Curry (Salt Free)
Country of Origin:
Our organic curry powder is a blend of spices that includes turmeric, which gives it its signature yellow hue, and other spices such as ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, mustard seed, fennel seed and black pepper.
The term "curry" originated with the British to refer to the variety of fragrant spices used in Indian cooking. In traditional Indian cuisine, the spice mixtures, called "masalas", are prepared at home. Many of these are blended with a liquid, such as water or vinegar, to create a curry paste or sauce. Fresh ingredients and pastes didn’t travel well, however. So when British officials of the East India Company returned to England with their fortunes, they tried to figure out how to continue enjoying the cuisine they had enjoyed on the Indian subcontinent. The Brits then discovered that they could import what they loved about Indian cuisine back to England in the form of curry powders. Armed with these spice blends, English chefs began to recreate Indian dishes in their own kitchens.
