What is Curry Powder?

Curry powder is an earthy, warm spice blend with a hint of brightness that mixes both sweet and savory flavors. Depending on the type and quantity of pepper used, the powder can be mild or spicy; a moderate blend will list ginger and black pepper as ingredients, while a spicy blend will list chile peppers. Turmeric is one of the primary components in curry powder. Additional spices that can be used range from fennel seed, mustard seed, and black pepper to ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and garlic.

Contrary to what many people think, it is not a common component in Indian cuisine. Curry powder was developed by the Brits to simulate the flavor of Indian cuisine. The name “curry” is used to describe a common Indian food, although it does not refer to the spice mixture; rather, it describes the dish itself, which consists of meat and vegetables in a sauce or gravy.

Curry Powder Uses

Curry powder has a place in the spice cabinet even though it is not intended for use in traditional Indian cuisine because it may provide a range of distinctive flavor. Hummus, egg salad, roasted vegetables, pureed soups, popcorn, and hummus can all be seasoned with curry powder. It will add some warmth and depth to an ordinary recipe.

Use curry powder as a seasoning in soups, stews, and sauces, as well as in marinades for meat and vegetables. It also adds a layer of flavor to chicken salad, hamburgers, and deviled eggs.

How to Cook with Curry Powder

When adding this spice mixture to the dish, it is best to combine it with a liquid (such broth or coconut milk) or yogurt to help the curry powder’s flavors permeate the other ingredients. Curry powder is also intended for slower cooking methods so the flavors can develop.
