The caloupilé (Murraya Koeningii) is a plant of the rutaceae family. It comes from the south of India and more particularly from the region of Kerala. It is found a lot in the tropical forests of the south of the peninsula.
This tree can reach 4 to 5 meters and has the particularity of being in bloom all year round. Some smaller varieties are grown in pots and do not exceed 100 cm in height. Its evergreen foliage regenerates quickly. The leaves of the caloupilé are thin and deep green.

Curry has been consumed in India for thousands of years. There, it is called "Massala" which means "mixture", because of its composition based on several spices.
However, the first written traces of curry can be found in a recipe book dating back to the 5th century BC. In this book, curry recipes were dishes that priests gave as offerings to the gods.
The massala was brought back from India by the English in the 18th century. In Europe, it is called curry, in reference to the name of the sauce dishes called "Kari" in the Tamil language. Kari are sauce dishes with fish, meat or vegetables spiced with a mixture of spices.
Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Arab countries, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Reunion... there are as many recipes for curry as there are countries and even regions.

This unique dish with Creole flavours is a must and is also very simple to make. Slice an onion, two peppers and tomatoes. Sauté the onion with a teaspoon of curry, then add the vegetables and the 40 cl of coconut milk. Simmer for 15 minutes before adding the prawns. Add the final touch by sprinkling with coriander. Serve with rice.
A fruity and gourmet dessert that goes wonderfully with doughnuts or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cut the bananas into pieces. Bring 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to the boil and plunge the bananas into it. Sweeten to your liking. Leave to reduce. Once the bananas are stewed, add a pinch of curry and cinnamon.
We advise you to keep your Kerala curry in an airtight container and away from light. Preserved in good conditions, curry retains its gustative qualities and its aromas for several months.
