swasthi Reply to zaheeda September 27, 2016 10:34 am Hi Zaheeda I am fine. Thank you for trying the recipes. Actually It is practically not possible for many to weigh each ingredient in grams. If I mention the number, that doesn’t yield accurate results since the size of onions and tomatoes differ from country or region to region. So i found measuring them in cups gives correct consistency of gravy and taste. Will surely show my measuring cups. i will mention the number, i guess that will be useful to you. Thanks again for the suggestion Reply

Though curry was introduced to Korea in the 1940s, the Indian dish was only popularized decades later, when Ottogi entered the Korean food industry by launching its powder-type curry product in 1969.[32][33] Korean curry, usually served with rice, is characterized by the golden yellow colour from turmeric.

Several different types of curries exist, depending on the cooking style, such as bhuna, bharta, roghan josh, qorma, qeema, and shorba. A favourite Pakistani curry is karahi, which is either mutton or chicken cooked in a cooking utensil called karahi, which is similar in shape to a wok. Lahori karahi incorporates garlic, ginger, fresh chillies, tomatoes and select spices. Peshawari karahi is another very popular version made with just meat, salt, tomatoes, and coriander.

Cauliflower curry recipe – A simple yet delicious & flavorful Indian cauliflower curry made with onions, tomatoes, spices & herbs. It goes so good with plain rice, roti, chapati, naan or plain paratha. This easy to make curry is a favorite at my home & is made very often for a quick dinner. The entire recipe from start to finish just takes about 30 mins.

Making kadhi In another pan or kadai, heat mustard oil. Make sure to use a large bottomed pot so that while boiling, the kadhi does not spill.Add the cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds and asafoetida. Allow the cumin seeds to crackle and the fenugreek seeds to change their color. Fry on a low flame, so that these spices do not get burnt.Add chopped onion. Stir and sauté for 3 minutes on a low flame.Then add chopped ginger, chopped garlic and chopped green chillies. Stir and sauté for a minute.Now add curry leaves, dry red chilies (halved or broken). Stir and sauté for a minute on a low flame.Then add the curd slurry.Stir very well.Increase the flame to medium and bring the kadhi to a boil. Keep on stirring often so that the bottom does not get browned. Time taken to cook kadhi will be around 14 to 16 minutes.After the kadhi has come to a boil, then lower the flame and simmer for more 6 to 7 minutes. The kadhi will thicken. If the kadhi becomes too thick, then add some hot water.

Sometimes potatoes or vegetables are also added to curries to increase volume and make them more nutritious. Often coconut cream is added to seafood curries, such as prawn, crab or fish curries. Dal is often cooked with only turmeric and then fried in cumin, onion, and garlic. Sometimes carrots and leafy vegetables like chauraiya or saijan are added for extra flavor and nutrients.

In Sri Lankan cuisine, rice, which is usually consumed daily, can be found at any special occasion, while spicy curries are favourite dishes for lunch and dinner. "Rice and curry" refers to a range of Sri Lankan dishes.

Curry is very popular in the United Kingdom, with a curry house in nearly every town.[39][40] Such is the popularity of curry in the United Kingdom, it has frequently been called its "adopted national dish".[41] It was estimated that in 2016 there were 12,000 curry houses, employing 100,000 people and with annual combined sales of approximately £4.2 billion.[42]

1. In another pan or kadai, heat 2 tbsp mustard oil. Make sure to use a large bottomed pot so that while cooking, the kadhi does not spill.

Preparation▢ Marinate mutton with the salt, ginger garlic, turmeric, chilli powder and curd. Yogurt & ginger garlic paste are natural meat tenderizers so they make the mutton succulent.▢ Set aside for about 45 mins to 1 hour. Marinating for longer makes the mutton soft and tender. I refrigerate for at least 2 hours to overnight. Overnight works best.▢ Keep the mutton out of the refrigerator at least 30 mins before cooking.

There are many varieties of dishes called "curries". For example, in original traditional cuisines, the precise selection of spices for each dish is a matter of national or regional cultural tradition, religious practice, and, to some extent, family preference. Such dishes are called by specific names that refer to their ingredients, spicing, and cooking methods.[4] Curry powder, a commercially prepared mixture of spices marketed in the West, was first exported to Britain in the 18th Century when Indian merchants sold a concoction of spices, similar to the garam masala, to the British colonial government and army returning to Britain.

15. Garnish with coriander leaves & serve Punjabi Kadhi Pakora hot with steamed rice or jeera rice, topped with few teaspoonfuls of ghee. You could also serve with roti or paratha. However, the combination of Kadhi Chawal (kadhi served with steamed rice) is very popular and tastes very good.

Durban has the largest single population of Indians outside of India, who have been developing traditional Natal curries since their arrival in the late 19th century.[73] Natal curries are mostly based on South Indian dishes and mostly consist of simple spiced lamb and chicken dishes (with large amounts of ghee and oils), but also include very complex and elaborate seafood, chicken and lamb specialties (chicken and prawn curry is a Natal favourite). Continental and British recipes have also evolved alongside Indian South African curries. Continental and British versions use mainly traditional recipes with the addition of red wine, milk, cream, vanilla or butter instead of ghee.

This dish doesn’t belong to any of the numerous regional cuisines of India, but does resemble dishes that were once served on trains during colonial times. It’s these simple recipes, adapted to Western tastes that allowed curry to conquer the planet.

Malaysian curries typically use turmeric-rich curry powders, coconut milk, shallots, ginger, belacan (shrimp paste), chili peppers, and garlic. Tamarind is also often used. Rendang is another form of curry consumed in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines; it is drier and contains mostly meat and more coconut milk than a conventional Malaysian curry. Rendang was mentioned in Malay literature Hikayat Amir Hamzah[34] (1550s) and is popular among Indonesians, Singaporeans and Malaysians. All sorts of things are curried in Malaysia, including mutton, chicken, tofu, shrimp, cuttlefish, fish, eggplants, eggs, and vegetables.

Japanese curry (カレー, karē) is usually eaten as karē raisu — curry, rice, and often pickled vegetables, served on the same plate and eaten with a spoon, a common lunchtime canteen dish. It is less spicy and seasoned than Indian and Southeast Asian curries, being more of a thick stew than a curry.

Now stir in the flour, turmeric, ginger and curry powder to soak up all the juices, and after that gradually stir in the stock. When the sauce begins to bubble add the apple, sultanas, mango chutney and grated coconut, plus some seasoning. Turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and let it cook for 30 minutes.

The first printed recipe, or “receipt”, for curry was published in the 1747 edition of The art of cookery made plain and easy, by Hannah Glasse.  It included only pepper and coriander seeds, with the rice added during cooking.   The more iconic spices of ginger and turmeric were introduced in the 1751 4th edition.  In the 1770 “new edition” (held in James Smithson’s own library), the coriander is omitted and the rice is separated out as an accompaniment.

British people brought curry from the Indian colony back to Britain[26] and introduced it to Japan during the Meiji period (1868 to 1912), after Japan ended its policy of national self-isolation (sakoku), and curry in Japan was categorised as a Western dish.[27] Its spread across the country is commonly attributed to its use in the Japanese Army and Navy which adopted it extensively as convenient field and naval canteen cooking, allowing even conscripts from the remotest countryside to experience the dish. The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force traditionally have curry every Friday for lunch and many ships have their own unique recipes.[28]

In Hong Kong, curry fish balls are a street snack, and curried brisket is a typical main course in cha chaan teng and fast-food restaurants. Despite its name, Singapore-style noodles is also a curried dish that originated in Hong Kong and became popular worldwide.

One popular dish, rendang from West Sumatran cuisine, is often described as caramelised beef dry curry. In Indonesia, rendang is usually not considered to be curry since it is richer and contains less liquid than is normal for Indonesian curries. Authentic rendang uses water buffalo meat slow-cooked in thick coconut milk for a number of hours to tenderise, caramelise, and flavour the meat. Opor Ayam is another variation of curry, which tastes very similar to gulai. Opor is usually whitish in colour and uses neither cinnamon nor turmeric, while gulai may contain either or both. Opor is also often part of a family meal around Lebaran, while gulai can be commonly found in Padang restaurants.

The establishment of the Mughal Empire, in the early 15th century, also influenced some curries, especially in the north. Another influence was the establishment of the Portuguese trading centre in Goa in 1510, resulting in the introduction of chili pepper, tomatoes and potatoes to India from the Americas, as a byproduct of the Columbian Exchange.[16]

Curries are the most well-known part of Indian cuisine. Most Indian dishes are usually curry-based, prepared by adding different types of vegetables, lentils, or meats in the curry. The content of the curry and style of preparation varies per region. Most curries are water-based, with occasional use of dairy and coconut milk. Curry dishes are usually thick and spicy and are eaten along with steamed rice and a variety of Indian breads.

InstructionsPreparation▢ Clean cauliflower and chop the florets to desired sizes. Optional – heat 3 cups water in a large bowl, add cauliflower florets to the slightly hot water. Leave it for some time. Rinse them under running water and drain them.How to make cauliflower curry▢ Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard and cumin. When they begin to sizzle add the curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds.▢ Add onions and green chilli. Saute until pink or golden.▢ Stir in ginger garlic and saute till a nice aroma comes out for about 30 to 60 seconds.▢ Then add tomatoes and salt. Saute until the tomatoes turn soft and mushy.▢ Add turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala and coriander powder. Saute for 30 to 60 seconds until the masala smells aromatic.▢ Then add cauliflower florets and saute for 1 to 2 mins.▢ Pour ½ to 1 cup water or coconut milk and give a good mix. I used 1 cup water at this step. Young cauliflower releases lots of moisture, so be careful not to add a lot of water at one time.▢ Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy.▢ If needed add more water or coconut milk to bring the curry to a desired consistency. I added half cup coconut milk at this stage.▢ Taste the curry and add more salt if needed. Garnish cauliflower curry with coriander leaves.

Dear Swasthi, thank you for a very easy to follow guide and a great recipe. My mother has just suffered a stroke so I’m trying to cook for her and feed her, but with little prior cooking experience! This dish, paired with a Kedgeree main course, really put a heartwarming smile on everyone’s faces, and I didn’t completely embarrass myself! I will be looking at a few of your other recipes over the coming days. Thank you.

Regardless of the ethnic origin of a restaurant's ownership, the menu will often be influenced by the wider South Asia (sometimes including Nepalese dishes), and sometimes cuisines from further afield (such as Persian dishes). Some British variations on Indian food are now being exported from the U.K. to India.[59] Curry restaurants of more-or-less the British style are also popular in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The most common Chinese variety of curry sauce is usually sold in powder form.[citation needed] The ethnic Cantonese being dominant in Kuala Lumpur, this yellow Chinese-Malaysian variety was naturally introduced to China by the Cantonese. It features typically in Hong Kong cuisine, where curry is often cooked with brisket or fish balls. Malay satay seems to have been introduced to China with wider success by the ethnic Teochew, who make up the second-largest group of Chinese of Singapore and are the dominant group in Thailand.

In Thai cuisine, curries are called kaeng, and usually consist of meat, fish or vegetables in a sauce based on a paste made from chilies, onions or shallots, garlic, and shrimp paste.[38] Additional spices and herbs define the type of curry. Local ingredients, such as chili peppers, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal are used and, in central and southern Thai cuisine, coconut milk. Northern and northeastern Thai curries generally do not contain coconut milk. Due to the use of sugar and coconut milk, Thai curries tend to be sweeter than Indian curries. In the West, some of the Thai curries are described by colour; red curries use red chilies while green curries use green chilies. Yellow curry—called kaeng kari (by various spellings) in Thai, of which a literal translation could be "curry soup"—is more similar to Indian curries, with the use of turmeric, cumin, and other dried spices. A few stir-fried Thai dishes also use an Indian style curry powder (Thai: phong kari).

In Pakistan, the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan border the Arabian Sea. Due to this, the Sindhi cuisine often has abundant use of fish in curries. Among Pakistani food, the Sindhi curries generally tend to be the hottest. The daily food in most Sindhi households consists of wheat-based flatbread (phulka) and rice accompanied by two dishes, one gravy and one dry.

What a DELICIOUS recipe! Swasthi, thank you so much for all your wonderfully detailed, flavourful and beautifully detailed recipes. I made it with abt 300 g cauliflower and half a cup frozen peas, scaling up the ingredients a bit. Used a 200 ml carton of Dabur coconut milk and abt half cup water. Just awesome.

Most Punjabi dishes are prepared using tadka, which is made with the frying of a "masala", which is a mix of ginger, garlic, onions and tomatoes with some dried spices. This is followed by the addition of other ingredients, water, and occasionally milk. Normally spicy, spice levels vary greatly depending on the household itself. Ghee and mustard oil are the most commonly used cooking fats. Many popular Punjabi dishes such as butter chicken and rajma are curry-based. These dishes are usually served with steamed rice and chapatis.

Hi Swasthi, I tried to cook mutton for first time, and it was so delicious and tender. Everyone liked it. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Regular ingredients include fresh onion, garlic and chili paste. Common spices include garam masala, dried chili powder, cumin powder, turmeric and ngapi, a fermented paste made from either fish or prawns. Burmese curries are quite oily, as the extra oil helps the food to last longer. A spaghetti equivalent called Nan gyi thohk exists, in which wheat or rice noodles are eaten with thick chicken curry.

Tamil cuisine's distinctive flavour and aroma is achieved by a blend and combination of spices including curry leaves, tamarind, coriander, ginger, garlic, chili, pepper, poppy seeds, mustard seeds, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, cumin, fennel or anise seeds, fenugreek seeds, nutmeg, coconut, turmeric root or powder, and rosewater. Lentils, vegetables and dairy products are essential accompaniments and are often served with rice. Traditionally vegetarian foods dominate the menu with a range of non-vegetarian dishes including freshwater fish and seafood cooked with spices and seasoning.

Curry was introduced to English cuisine starting with Anglo-Indian cooking in the 17th century as spicy sauces were added to plain boiled and cooked meats.[17] The 1758 edition of Hannah Glasse's The Art of Cookery contains a recipe "To make a Currey the India Way".[18] Curry was first served in coffee houses in Britain from 1809, and has been increasingly popular in Great Britain, with major jumps in the 1940s and the 1970s.[19] During the 19th century, curry was also carried to the Caribbean by Indian indentured workers in the British sugar industry. Since the mid-20th century, curries of many national styles have become popular far from their origins, and increasingly become part of international fusion cuisine.

Being at the crossroads of ancient trade routes has left a mark on Malaysian cuisine. While curry may have initially found its way to Malaysian shores via the Indian population, it has since become a staple among the Malays and Chinese. Malaysian curries differ from state to state, even within similar ethnic groupings, as they are influenced by many factors, be they cultural, religious, agricultural or economical.

In Karachi & Hyderabad, Sindh, apart from plain kadhi, a variety of vegetables such as okra, aubergine and drumstick beans may be added. In Pakistan, Kadhi, by default, implies that Pakodas are included. It is eaten with chapatis or plain boiled rice.

In Northern India, pakoras are added to the gram flour gravy and sour yogurt is added to add flavor to it. They are eaten either with boiled rice or roti. In Gujarat and Rajasthan, it is usually served with khichdi, roti, paratha or rice. It is considered a light food. Gujarati and Rajasthani kadhi differs from the Uttar Pradesh variety. Traditionally, it is little sweeter than the other variants, because sugar or jaggery is added to it, but it can be made without sugar for a more sour taste. It is eaten without pakoras and its consistency is slightly thinner. The Gujarati kadhi is made preferably from buttermilk as it gives a more smooth texture compared to yogurt. Variations on this basic dish include the addition of certain vegetables, notably bhindi (okra) in which case it is known as bhinda ni kadhi. In Punjab, kadhi is a simple, quick winter meal. Made from besan (Gram flour) to thicken the consistency, and adding pakoras, it is eaten with either long-grain basmati rice or, more commonly, with a roti. Unlike the rest of India, sour yogurt is not added—just full-fat buttermilk or unsweetened yogurt.

Kadhi or karhi is a dish originating from the Rajasthan . It consists of a thick gravy based on gram flour, and contains vegetable fritters called pakoras, to which dahi (yogurt) is added to give it a bit of sour taste. It is often eaten with cooked rice or roti.

In Southern states, it is seasoned with sauteed asafoetida, mustard seeds, cumin, and fenugreek. The soup is thickened in a different way by the addition of pureed split chickpea soaked overnight with whole coriander seeds and dry red chili pepper. Squash, okra, tomato, Chinese spinach, carrots, sweet peas are a few vegetables that are added to seasoning before bringing the soup to a boil. Pakoras (gram flour fritters) are added for special occasions like ceremonies. It is called majjige huli in Kannada, majjiga pulusu in Telugu and mor kuzhambu in Tamil with similar meaning. In Kerala, it is called kaalan.

Other British curry derivatives include "Coronation chicken", a cold dish, often used as a sandwich filling, invented to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 – and curry sauce (or curry gravy), usually served warm with traditional British fast food dishes such as chips. Curry sauce occasionally includes sultanas or other dried fruits.

Hitesh Dayaljee December 9, 2020 10:34 am Hi there, thank you for the simple recipe. I will definitely give try it. I have a question, instead of coconut milk could I use butter milk, yogurt or soya milk? Reply

Burmese curries can be generalised into two types – the hot spicy dishes which exhibit north Indian or Pakistani influence, and the milder "sweet" curries. Burmese curries almost overwhelmingly lack coconut milk, setting them apart from most southeast Asian curries.

The name "vindaloo" derives from the Portuguese vinha d'alhos or wine (vinho) and garlic (alho), the two definitive flavour ingredients. The dish was originally made with pork, not taboo to the Christian Portuguese. The inclusion of potatoes was a later Indian addition, thought to be the result of confusion with the Hindi word for potato, aloo. Throughout the years "vindaloo" has been altered to appeal to many people by adding spices and different wines.[23]

The standard Japanese curry contains onions, carrots, potatoes, and sometimes celery, and a meat that is cooked in a large pot. Sometimes grated apples or honey are added for additional sweetness and other vegetables are sometimes used instead. For the meat, pork, beef, and chicken are the most popular, in order of decreasing popularity. In northern and eastern Japan including Tokyo, pork is the most popular meat for curry. Beef is more common in western Japan, including Osaka, and in Okinawa, chicken is favoured.[29] Curry seasoning is commonly sold in the form of a condensed brick, similar to a bouillon cube, which dissolves in the mixture of meat and vegetables.

2. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds, 8 to 10 fenugreek seeds (methi seeds) and a generous pinch of asafoetida (hing). Allow the cumin seeds to crackle and the fenugreek seeds to change their color. Fry on a low flame, so that these spices do not get burnt.

Archaeological evidence dating to 2600 BCE from Mohenjo-daro suggests the use of mortar and pestle to pound spices including mustard, fennel, cumin, and tamarind pods with which they flavoured food.[12] Black pepper is native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia and has been known to Indian cooking since at least 2000 BCE.[13]

If cooking in a regular pot, then cook until soft and tender, adding more water as & when needed. If using pressure cooker – pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles on a medium flame.

The curries of Karnataka are typically vegetarian or with meat and fish around mostly coastal areas. They use a wide variety of vegetables, spices, coconut and jaggery. There are dry and sauce-based curries. Some typical sauce-based dishes include saaru, gojju, thovve, huli, majjige huli (which is similar to the kadi made in the north), sagu or kootu, which is eaten mixed with hot rice.

Traditional vegetable curries in the Maldives include those that use bashi (eggplant/aubergine), tora (Luffa aegyptiaca), barabō (pumpkin), chichanda (Trichosanthes cucumerina) and muranga (Moringa oleifera), as well as green unripe bananas and certain leaves as their main ingredients. Pieces of Maldive fish are normally added to give the vegetable curry a certain flavour.[36]

Until the early 1970s, more than three-quarters of Indian restaurants in Britain were identified as being owned and run by people of Bengali origin. Most were run by migrants from East Pakistan, which became Bangladesh in 1971. Bangladeshi restaurateurs overwhelmingly come from the northeastern division of Sylhet. Until 1998, as many as 85% of curry restaurants in the UK were British Bangladeshi restaurants,[54] but in 2003 this figure declined to just over 65%.[55] The dominance of Bangladeshi restaurants is generally declining in some parts of London and the further north one travels. In Glasgow, there are more restaurants of Punjabi origin than any other.[56]

Hi there, thank you for the simple recipe. I will definitely give try it. I have a question, instead of coconut milk could I use butter milk, yogurt or soya milk?

Curry tteokbokki, along with curry rice, is one of the most popular curry dishes in Korea. It is made of tteok (rice cakes), eomuk (fish cakes), eggs, vegetables, and curry. Curry can be added to various Korean dishes such as bokkeumbap (fried rice), sundubujjigae (silken tofu stew), fried chicken, vegetable stir-fries, and salads. Curry is also used in Korean-style western food such as pasta and steak, as well as Korean-style Japanese food such as cream udon.

The food in general from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, both with Telugu-speaking natives, is considered the hottest in India. The state, being the leading producer of red chilli and green chilli, influences the liberal use of spices, making their curries, chutneys, savories and pickles the hottest and spiciest in taste.

In the Philippines, two kinds of curry traditions are seen corresponding with the cultural divide between the Hispanicised north and Indianised/Islamised south. In the northern areas, a linear range of new curry recipes could be seen. The most common is a variant of the native ginataang manok (chicken is cooked in coconut milk) dish with the addition of curry powder, known as the "Filipino chicken curry". This is the usual curry dish that northern Filipinos are familiar with. Similarly, other northern Filipino dishes that can be considered "curries" are usually ginataan (cooked with coconut milk) variants of other native meat or seafood dishes such as adobo, kaldereta, and mechado, that simply add curry powder or non-native Indian spices.[37]

Heat the dripping and fry the onion and celery over a medium heat, tossing them around till softened and well browned at the edges, then add the garlic and toss that around for a minute. Now stir in the flour, turmeric, ginger and curry powder to soak up all the juices, and after that gradually stir in the stock. When the sauce begins to bubble add the apple, sultanas, mango chutney and grated coconut, plus some seasoning. Turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and let it cook for 30 minutes. After that, add the turkey pieces and a squeeze of lemon juice, stir well, put a lid on and simmer gently for a further 10 minutes to reheat the turkey. Serve with basmati rice, poppadoms, mango chutney and lime pickle, and you can watch how to cook perfect rice in our Cookery School Video on the right.

swasthi Reply to Hitesh Dayaljee December 9, 2020 10:51 am Hi, Buttermilk or yogurt won’t work here. You can use cashew milk. Just soak 15 cashew nuts in 1/4 cup hot water for 30 minutes. Puree this to smooth milk in small grinder. Mix it with another half cup water and pour. Hope this helps Reply

The first curry recipe in Britain appeared in The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy by Hannah Glasse in 1747.[44] The first edition of her book used only black pepper and coriander seeds for seasoning of "currey". By the fourth edition of the book, other ingredients such as turmeric and ginger were called for. The use of hot spices was not mentioned, which reflected the limited use of chili in India — chili plants had only been introduced into India around the late 16th century and at that time were only popular in southern India.

Bengalis in the UK settled in big cities with industrial employment. In London, they settled in the East End, which for centuries has been the first port of call for many immigrants working in the docks and shipping from east Bengal. Their regular stopover paved the way for food and curry outlets to be opened up catering for an all-male workforce as family migration and settlement took place some decades later. Brick Lane in the East London Borough of Tower Hamlets is famous for its many curry houses.

This is again one of those recipe posts, where there are maximum pictures. Since I am presenting a step-by-step photo guide, I will first begin with making the curd slurry, then making the onion pakora and then finally with the making of the kadhi pakora.

The cuisine from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan is somewhat similar to the cuisine of Afghanistan. Extreme winters in some areas made the supply of fresh vegetables impossible, so a lot of dried fruits and vegetables are incorporated in the cuisine. The province still produces a large amount of nuts which are used abundantly in traditional cooking, along with cereals like wheat, maize, barley, and rice. Accompanying these staples are dairy products (yoghurt, whey), various nuts, native vegetables, and fresh and dried fruits. Peshawari karahi from the provincial capital of Peshawar is a popular curry all over the country.

In the West, the best-known Kashmiri curry is rogan josh, a wet curry of lamb with a brilliant red gravy whose colour is derived from a combination of Kashmiri chillies and an extract derived from the red flowers of the cockscomb plant (mawal).[30] Goshtaba (large lamb meatballs cooked in yoghurt gravy) is another curry dish from the Wazwan tradition occasionally found in Western restaurants.[31]

In general the food offered is Indian food cooked to British taste; however, there is increasing demand for authentic Indian food. As of 2015 curry houses accounted for a fifth of the restaurant business in the U.K. but, being historically a low wage sector, they were plagued by a shortage of labour. Established Indian immigrants from South Asia were moving on to other occupations; there were difficulties in training Europeans to cook curry; and immigration restrictions, which require payment of a high wage to skilled immigrants, had crimped the supply of new cooks.[43]

Apart from with rice, curry is also served over noodles, possibly even on top of broth in addition, in dishes such as curry udon and curry ramen. It is also used as the filling in a fried curry bread pastry.

Syl December 30, 2020 7:43 pm Hi, This recipe looks awesome.. I will surely try it. Just one question though, when you say 2 cup onions.. Would that mean approx 2 to 3 medium sized onions? Pls do reply Thank you Reply

Cuisine in Pakistani Punjab differs from Indian Punjab on account of contents and religious diet rules. A typical Punjabi meal consists of some form of bread or rice with a salan (curry). Most preparations start with the frying of a masala which is a concoction of ginger, garlic, onions, tomatoes, and dried spices. Various other ingredients are then added. Spice level varies greatly depending on the sub-region as well as the household itself. A popular cooking fat is desi ghee with some dishes enriched with liberal amounts of butter and cream. There are certain dishes that are exclusive to Punjab, such as maash di dal and saron da saag (sarson ka saag). In Punjab and Kashmir, the only dish known as kardhi (curry) is a dish made of dahi (yogurt) and flour dumplings.

In Fiji curries are made in many Indian homes and are eaten with rice or roti. Roti (circle or square) is mainly eaten for breakfast with vegetable curries. Lunch is often dal and rice with some side dishes. Many working people take roti and curry for their lunch.[citation needed] Dinner is usually curry, rice with some chutneys. Curries are normally cooked in vegetable oil. Ghee is mainly used to fry dal, to make puris or sweets. To make a curry, spices like cumin, fenugreek, mustard, and curry leaves are added to the hot oil. Onion is chopped or sliced and garlic crushed and added to the pot. Once the onion and garlic have turned slightly golden then turmeric and garam masala are added. For every 1 tsp turmeric normally 2 tsp masala is added.[citation needed] Salt and chillies are added according to taste. Curry is simmered on low heat until well cooked. Water is added so that it can be mixed with rice. If coriander leaves are available then they are added for extra flavour.

In Indonesia curry is called kari or kare. The most common type of kari consumed in Indonesia is kari ayam (chicken curry) and kari kambing (goat meat curry). In Aceh and North Sumatra roti cane is often eaten with kari kambing. Other dishes such as gulai and opor are dishes based on curry. They are often highly localised and reflect the meat and vegetables available. They can therefore employ a variety of meats (chicken, beef, water buffalo and goat as in the flavoursome gulai kambing), seafood (such as prawn, crab, mussel, clam, and squid), fish (tuna, mackerel, carp, pangasius, catfish), or vegetables (young jackfruit, common beans, cassava leaf) dishes in a spiced sauce. They use local ingredients such as chili peppers, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, Indonesian bay leaves (salam leaf), candlenuts, turmeric, turmeric leaves, asam gelugur and asam kandis (sour mangosteens similar to tamarind), shrimp paste (terasi), cumin, coriander seed and coconut milk. In Aceh, curries use daun salam koja or daun kari (Murraya koenigii) translated as "curry leaves".

In the Caribbean, curry is a very popular dish. The Indian indentured servants that were brought over from India by different European powers brought this dish to the Caribbean. In Jamaica and Trinidad, curry goat is prominently featured. Curry can be found at both inexpensive and upscale Caribbean restaurants, and ingredients can range from chicken or vegetables to shellfish such as shrimp and scallops.

"Curry powder", as available in certain western markets, is a commercial spice blend, and first sold by Indian merchants to European colonial traders. This resulted in the export of a derived version of Indian concoction of spices.[74] and commercially available from the late 18th century,[75][76] with brands such as Crosse & Blackwell and Sharwood's persisting to the present.[77] British traders introduced the powder to Meiji Japan, in the mid-19th century, where it became known as Japanese curry.[78]

The curries of Maharashtra vary from mildly spicy to very spicy and include vegetarian, mutton, chicken and fish. Coastal Maharashtrian – Konkani – curries use coconut extensively along with spices. In western Maharashtra, curries are very spicy, often with peanut powder. Vidarbha's cuisine is usually spicier than that of the coastal and southern regions. The ingredients commonly used are besan (gram flour), or chickpea flour, and groundnut powder. As a result of the Mughal rule in the region, the cuisine of Aurangabad has been highly influenced by the North Indian method of cooking. Khandeshi food is very spicy and the most famous dish is shev bhaji. Others include Eggplant bharta (wangyache bhareet), (urid dal), stuffed eggplant (bharleli wangi), bhaakari with thecha etc. The majority of Maharashtrian people are farmers living in the rural areas and therefore their traditional food is very simple.

Here I’ve adapted the 1770 version, halved it, and translated where necessary.  Additionally I’ve included Glasse’s companion recipe for boiled rice.  Both recipes were incredibly easy (granted I didn’t have to kill my own chicken, grind my own spices, or pick stones of dirt out of my rice *as well as* benefiting from the use of onion goggles!).  My husband, who is not a curry fan, and I enjoyed it immensely.  He even ate the leftovers, which he never does.  I also took the liberty of deviating from my culinary re-enactment and added some mango chutney on the side.  Tasty!

Gaurav Kumar June 11, 2020 6:20 am Hi Swasthi, I tried to cook mutton for first time, and it was so delicious and tender. Everyone liked it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Reply

Making onion pakoraTake the gram flour in a bowl and add carom seeds, red chili powder, garam masala powder and salt.Add 1 cup thinly sliced onions.Mix everything well and set aside covered for 30 minutes.This will allow the onions to release their water in the mixture. Depending on the water content in the onions, the mixture will become very moist or just about moist.Then accordingly add water as required to make a thick batter. I added ¼ cup water.Heat oil for deep frying in a pan or kadai. With a spoon or with your hands drop the pakora batter in the oil.When the pakora are partly cooked, then turn over and fry the other side.Fry till the pakora are crisp and golden.Remove the fried pakora and place them on a kitchen paper towel so that extra oil is absorbed. Fry the pakora in batches this way. When done set all of them aside.

swasthi Reply to Colin Theodore August 14, 2020 2:53 pm Hi Colin Thank you. You may saute the tomatoes separately and add. For more gravy, just use 1.5 times of all the ingredients except mutton. Hope this helps. Reply

Made mutton curry for the first time, I am lucky that I chose your receipe, my parents loved it. Thank you, would always look upto you for more.

In Haryana, a popular variation is called haryanvi hara choley kadhi, made with besan and hare choley (raw green chickpeas) with pure ghee; the generous dollops of homemade fresh butter are added during serving. Haryanvi kadhi is sometimes cooked with additional ingredients, such as seasonal farm-fresh green bathua leaves or kachri, small wild melons.

In southern areas of the Visayas, Mindanao, the Sulu Archipelago and southern Palawan, various older curry recipes are seen, and owe their origins to the limited influence of the Spanish in these regions that preserved older culinary traditions; as well as closer historical ties to Malay states like the Sultanate of Brunei. These Mindanaoan curries include kulma, synonymous with the Indian korma; tiyula itum which is a beef curry blackened with burned coconut-meat powder; and rendang, also eaten in Indonesia and Malaysia. Meats used in these curries include beef, goat, mutton, lamb, seafood and chicken. Pork is not used, in accordance with Islamic dietary laws.

In the early 2010s the popularity of the curry house saw a decline. This has been attributed to the sale of this style of food in generic restaurants, increased home cooking of this style of food with easy supermarket availability of ingredients, and immigration restrictions brought in from 2008 making the availability of low-wage chefs and other staff difficult.[57][58]

The origin of curry, the saucy, spiced dish celebrated in India and Great Britain, is not exactly known.   But it is now thought that similarly spiced dishes were developed concurrently, but independent of each other, in England and in India thanks to the spice routes that spanned from Asia and into Europe.   Exotic spices like turmeric and pepper made their way into England during the conquests of the Romans in 40 AD and the Moors in 711 AD, and came in handy during Middle Ages when highly seasoned meats could make aging meat more palatable. Curry powder, the crafted spice blend, however, is an 18th century English invention developed as a cooking convenience.  During the time of James Smithson, curry the “Indian way” became a culinary trend influenced by the British colonial interests in India via the East India Company. "Currey", the Indian way. The first printed recipe, or “receipt”, for curry was published in the 1747 edition of The art of cookery made plain and easy, by Hannah Glasse.  It included only pepper and coriander seeds, with the rice added during cooking.   The more iconic spices of ginger and turmeric were introduced in the 1751 4th edition.  In the 1770 “new edition” (held in James Smithson’s own library), the coriander is omitted and the rice is separated out as an accompaniment. Even though Glasse plagiarized 342 of the 972 recipes in The art of cookery, it was amusing and clever in its lauding of the use of simple ingredients and methods.  And her recipe for curry maintains that philosophy. Here I’ve adapted the 1770 version, halved it, and translated where necessary.  Additionally I’ve included Glasse’s companion recipe for boiled rice.  Both recipes were incredibly easy (granted I didn’t have to kill my own chicken, grind my own spices, or pick stones of dirt out of my rice *as well as* benefiting from the use of onion goggles!).  My husband, who is not a curry fan, and I enjoyed it immensely.  He even ate the leftovers, which he never does.  I also took the liberty of deviating from my culinary re-enactment and added some mango chutney on the side.  Tasty! Glasse's 1770 recipe for curry. “To make a currey the Indian way” 2 c. water 1 3-4 lb. chicken, cut-up and skinned 1 ½ large onions (about 12 oz. or 2 ½ c.), chopped small 1 oz. butter (2 T.) 1 T. ground turmeric 1 ½ t. dried, ground ginger 1 ½ t. fine-ground black peppercorns 1 t. kosher salt 1 c. cream Juice of 1 lemon  Mix turmeric, ginger, pepper, and salt.  Put aside. Skin chicken parts. In large pot, bring water to boil then add chicken pieces.  Bring to simmer, cover (reduce heat further if necessary), and stew (i.e. fricasey) for 5 min.  Strain off and save broth (i.e., liquor).  Put chicken aside. Heat a large, wide, heavy bottomed cooking pan over medium-high heat.  Melt butter, add onions, and sauté them for about 3 min.  Add chicken to onions and fry together until onions and chicken begin to brown, about 3-4 more minutes. Sprinkle (i.e. strew) spice mix over chicken.  Stir quickly to coat chicken pieces.  Add broth.  Stir and scrap any brown bits off the bottom of the pan.  Bring to simmer, cover, and stew for about 30 minutes. Remove lid.  At this point the broth should be well reduced, but the onions should still appear wet.  Stir in cream and warm through but do not boil. Remove from heat and add juice of one lemon. Serve with boiled rice (see recipe below). “To boil the rice” 1 quart (4 cups) water 1 c. rice ½ t. salt Bring water to boil (this sounds like a lot of water, but it’s not for a rapid boil). Stir in rice.  Boil 18-20 min. uncovered on med-high.   Boil should be aggressive, but not raging. Test for doneness at 18 min.  Remove from heat and stir in salt. Turn rice into colander and let sit for 5 min. Fluff rice with fork before serving.

Although wet curries play a smaller role in Gujarat than elsewhere, there are a number of vegetarian examples with gravies based on buttermilk or coconut milk. The main ingredient may variously be brinjal (eggplant/aubergine), potatoes, fresh corn kernels, okra, tomatoes, etc. In addition, there are several common kofta dishes which substitute vegetables for meat.[24] Undhiyu, a Gujarati specialty, is a spicy 'wet' mixed-vegetable 'casserole' cooked in an earthenware pot, often eaten during the winter months.

Curry powder, the crafted spice blend, however, is an 18th century English invention developed as a cooking convenience.  During the time of James Smithson, curry the “Indian way” became a culinary trend influenced by the British colonial interests in India via the East India Company.

Bengali cuisine, which refers to the cuisine of Bangladesh and the West Bengal state of India, includes curries, including seafood and fresh fish. Mustard seeds and mustard oil are added to many recipes, as are poppy seeds. Emigrants from the Sylhet district of Bangladesh founded the curry house industry in Britain and in Sylhet some restaurants run by expatriates specialise in British-style Indian food.[20]

K B November 26, 2016 11:17 pm Dear Swasthi, thank you for a very easy to follow guide and a great recipe. My mother has just suffered a stroke so I’m trying to cook for her and feed her, but with little prior cooking experience! This dish, paired with a Kedgeree main course, really put a heartwarming smile on everyone’s faces, and I didn’t completely embarrass myself! I will be looking at a few of your other recipes over the coming days. Thank you. Reply

Outside of the Indian subcontinent, "curry" may also be used to describe the various unrelated native dishes of Island Southeast Asia, Mainland Southeast Asia, and Oceania which use coconut milk or spice pastes and are commonly eaten over rice (like the Filipino ginataan and Thai gaeng class of dishes).[5] Dishes called 'curry' may contain fish, meat, poultry, or shellfish, either alone or in combination with vegetables. Others are entirely vegetarian. Dry curries are cooked with very little liquid which is allowed to evaporate, leaving the other ingredients coated with the spice mixture. Wet curries contain significant amounts of sauce or gravy based on broth, coconut cream or coconut milk, dairy cream or yogurt, or legume purée, sautéed crushed onion, or tomato purée.

After that, add the turkey pieces and a squeeze of lemon juice, stir well, put a lid on and simmer gently for a further 10 minutes to reheat the turkey. Serve with basmati rice, poppadoms, mango chutney and lime pickle, and you can watch how to cook perfect rice in our Cookery School Video on the right.

Curries known as vindaloo have become well known in Great Britain, America, and elsewhere, where the name is usually used simply to indicate a fiery dish of lamb or chicken frequently including potatoes. Such dishes are far from the Goan originals.

We love kadhi, be it with or without pakora. When we serve Punjabi kadhi pakora with steamed rice or jeera rice, we call it kadhi chawal – where chawal is the Hindi word for rice.

For this recipe, the Hindi word “Kadhi” denotes a yogurt sauce which has been slow cooked for quite some time. The word “pakora” means fritters made from gram flour (besan). In this recipe, the fritters are made with onions and gram flour.

The most important curry in the cuisine of the Maldives is cooked with diced fresh tuna and is known as mas riha. Kukulhu riha, chicken curry, is cooked with a different mixture of spices.[35]

Hi, This recipe looks awesome.. I will surely try it. Just one question though, when you say 2 cup onions.. Would that mean approx 2 to 3 medium sized onions? Pls do reply Thank you

This was delicious! I added potatoes, peas and carrots to triple the recipe, and I am so glad that I did. I substituted ground cumin (as I did not have seeds), a split long red chilli (as I did not have green) and bay leaves (as I did not have curry leaves). I used a 1:2 mix of garam marsala and curry powder. Thanks very much for sharing. I will certainly make this again.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, curry grew increasingly popular in Britain owing to the large number of British civil servants and military personnel associated with the British Raj. Following World War II, curry became even more popular in Britain owing to the large number of immigrants from South Asia.

Mutton curry recipe – Lamb curry or mutton masala gravy. Delicious, soft tender chunks of lamb meat in Indian style spiced onion tomato gravy.

How to make cauliflower curry▢ Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard and cumin. When they begin to sizzle add the curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds.▢ Add onions and green chilli. Saute until pink or golden.▢ Stir in ginger garlic and saute till a nice aroma comes out for about 30 to 60 seconds.▢ Then add tomatoes and salt. Saute until the tomatoes turn soft and mushy.▢ Add turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala and coriander powder. Saute for 30 to 60 seconds until the masala smells aromatic.▢ Then add cauliflower florets and saute for 1 to 2 mins.▢ Pour ½ to 1 cup water or coconut milk and give a good mix. I used 1 cup water at this step. Young cauliflower releases lots of moisture, so be careful not to add a lot of water at one time.▢ Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy.▢ If needed add more water or coconut milk to bring the curry to a desired consistency. I added half cup coconut milk at this stage.▢ Taste the curry and add more salt if needed. Garnish cauliflower curry with coriander leaves.

The Sindhi diaspora in India usually make kadhi by first roasting the chickpea flour and adding vegetables to the chickpea gravy. It is called kadhi because of the use of curry leaves, which are called kadhi patta in Sindhi. Instead of yogurt, tamarind pulp is used to give it a sour taste. An alternate way is to make a liquid mixture of the chickpea flour instead of roasting chickpeas.

Marinate mutton with the salt, ginger garlic, turmeric, chilli powder and curd. Yogurt & ginger garlic paste are natural meat tenderizers so they make the mutton succulent.

Many curry recipes are contained in 19th century cookbooks such as those of Charles Elmé Francatelli and Mrs Beeton. In Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, a recipe for curry powder is given that contains coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne, mustard, ginger, allspice and fenugreek; although she notes that it is more economical to purchase the powder at "any respectable shop".[45]

Pakistani curries, especially in the provinces of Punjab and Sindh, are basically similar to their counterparts in northern India. Mutton and beef are common ingredients. A typical Pakistani lunch or dinner often consists of some form of bread (such as naan or roti) or rice with a meat or vegetable-based curry. Barbecue style or roasted meats are also very popular in the form of kebabs.

The original curry pre-dates Europeans' presence in India by about 4,000 years. The three basic ingredients of the spicy stew were ginger, garlic and turmeric, and, using a method called "starch grain analysis", archaeologists at the University of Washington at Vancouver were able to identify the residue of these ancient spices in both skeletons and pottery shards from excavations in India. Examining the human teeth and the residue from the cooking pots, signs of turmeric and ginger were evident.[14][15]

Burmese cuisine is based on a very different understanding of curries. The principal ingredients of almost all Burmese curries are fresh onion (which provides the gravy and main body of the curry), Indian spices and red chilies. Usually, meat and fish are the main ingredients for popular curries.

Curry is a variety of dishes originating in the Indian subcontinent. It uses a combination of spices or herbs, usually including ground turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, and fresh or dried chilies. In southern India, curry leaves from the curry tree are also an integral ingredient.[1] Turmeric is the main spice in curry, having a warm, bitter taste and is used to flavor or color curry powder, mustard, butter, and cheese. Curry is generally prepared as a sauce.[2][3]

In Vietnam where curry is called cà ri, curry features include coconut milk, potato, sweet potato, taro roots, chicken garnished with coriander, and green onion. It is more soup-like than Indian curry. The curry is usually eaten with a baguette, rice vermicelli or steamed rice. Some dishes use a curry-based stew, such as snail dishes, phá lấu, stewed frogs or eels.

In Northern Pakistan, in and around Hazara region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Kadhi is prepared with a variety of additives at a time. These include chicken Kadhi, kaddu (pumpkin) Kadhi, sarson (mustard leaves) kadhi are some of the more famous varieties.

This cuisine is characterised by the use of a common base for all the sauces to which spices are added when individual dishes are prepared. The standard "feedstock" is usually a sautéed mixture of onion, garlic and fresh ginger, to which various spices are added, depending on the recipe, but which may include: cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, chilies, peppercorns, cumin and mustard seeds. Ground coriander seed is widely used as a thickening agent, and turmeric is added for colour and its digestive qualities.[60][61][62][self-published source?] Fresh or canned tomatoes and bell peppers are a common addition.

Malayali curries of Kerala typically contain shredded coconut paste or coconut milk, curry leaves, and various spices. Mustard seeds are used in almost every dish, along with onions, curry leaves, and sliced red chilies fried in hot oil. Most of the non-vegetarian dishes are heavily spiced. Kerala is known for its traditional sadya, a vegetarian meal served with boiled rice and a host of side dishes such as parippu (green gram), papadum, ghee, sambar, rasam, aviyal, kaalan, kichadi, pachadi, injipuli, Koottukari, pickles (mango, lime), thoran, one to four types of payasam, boli, olan, pulissery, moru (buttermilk), upperi, and banana chips. The sadya is customarily served on a banana leaf.

Chinese curries (咖哩, gā lǐ) typically consist of chicken, beef, fish, lamb, or other meats, green peppers, onions, large chunks of potatoes, and a variety of other ingredients and spices in a mildly spicy yellow curry sauce, and topped over steamed rice. White pepper, soy sauce, hot sauce or hot chili oil may be applied to the sauce to enhance the flavour of the curry.
