The internet is a wonderful tool, as we all know.  Here are 3 interesting facts and myths about curry that we have come across while googling.

  1. The earliest known curry is believed to have been made in Mesopotamia in around 1700BC.
  2. The word ‘curry’ is thought to have derived from the Tamil word ‘kari’ meaning spiced sauce.
  3. Korma is probably the most misunderstood curry in the world.  The word means slow cooked or braised rather than the British understanding of it as a mild curry.  Indeed, it can be very mild or fierily hot, depending on the ingredients used.
