For my first food trivia post, let me talk about my favorite dish. Curry is a dish that I love so much.
But, did you know these things about curry?
At its most basic, curry refers to a spicy dish of vegetables and/or meat served over rice.
In some types of Indian cuisine, curry denotes a dish that is sort of like a soup made with yogurt, clarified butter, spices and chick pea flour.
One common thread in many curry powder mixtures is turmeric, which gives curries a distinctive yellow color. Other popular spices in curry powder include coriander, ginger, garlic, chilies, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, cumin and tamarind.
The main types of curry you might encounter in an Indian or Thai restaurant are red, yellow, and green curry. Red curry is made with red chiles, while green curry is made with green chiles. Yellow curry is made mostly with turmeric and cumin, though it may include hot peppers or pepper flakes as well.
