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.
- The earliest known curry is believed to have been made in Mesopotamia in around 1700BC.
- The word ‘curry’ is thought to have derived from the Tamil word ‘kari’ meaning spiced sauce.
- 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.
