What is “Curry”?

Curry brings to mind the fabulous dishes made in India. Curry spice can be found throughout America and the world, it is a combination of spices blended together and called “curry.” But in India curry is made by purchasing spices and grinding them fresh. Because of this, in India curry spice can vary widely. In America we will probably find most curry powder similar in flavor but in India the curry spice probably has a much different flavor, depending on who’s doing the cooking and what spices they decide to blend together.
