The combination of spices is an ideal way to bring different flavours to your dishes. The Aztec Curry that I propose to you will become an ally in your kitchen to give a "taste of elsewhere" to your meats, vegetables and fish. For my recipe for Curry powder, I have carefully studied the combinations of spices that go best with it.
David Vanille's choice: I chose to offer you the blend that suits all the ingredients. Stemming from Mexican gastronomy, the Curry of the Aztecs will make your taste buds shiver.
In the curry powder mix that I offer you, I have chosen the 7 spices meeting:
Some of these spices can be used on their own while others are not always appropriate or easy to dose properly in a dish. It is really the blend of these different spices that makes Aztec Curry easy to incorporate into all your preparations.
There are many different kinds of curry powder. In fact, the word Curry is a generic term used to call a mixture of spices.
All around the world, there are an infinite number of recipes depending on the country or region you are in. Curry from India, the West Indies, Jamaica, Vietnam, Indonesia... There are dozens of different recipes!
Depending on the tastes of different populations, the Currys are more or less marked by one spice or another. During my many travels, it is indeed the mixture of Aztec Curry that has amazed me the most, and I would like to share this delight with you.
Corn and squash were the basic ingredients of South and Central American cuisine. Together with dry beans, they were the main diet of the Indians. To enhance their culinary preparations, they used chilli peppers grown in large quantities on their land. Mexican coriander has a special flavour that goes very well with the rest of the spices, which is why I wanted to keep it in my recipe. As the Aztecs colonized and discovered the world, the Aztec Curry became richer in flavor thanks to the addition of new condiments.
Beyond the pleasure it brings in terms of scents and tastes in your mouth, Aztec Curry is beneficial thanks to the combination of spices that compose it.
