  • What is curry?

    Curry is a mixture of spices that differs according to the culinary traditions of its region of origin. Kerala is a region in southern India, curry from this region is made with different spices including coriander, fenugreek, fennel, salt and cumin, chilli pepper... The curry leaf looks like bay leaf. It is used in the composition of several varieties of massala.

    Did you know that? The term massala (or masala) means "mixture" in Tamil.

    The harvest of the caloupilé: the curry leaves

    The caloupilé (Murraya Koeningii) is a plant of the rutaceae family. It comes from southern India and more particularly from the Kerala region. It is widely found in the tropical forests of the southern part 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.

    In cooking, curry leaves are used either by putting them fresh in the casserole dish or by drying them to obtain curry powder.

    Did you know that? A caloupilé (curry tree) can produce up to 100 kilos of leaves per year!

    The preparation of curry

    The main ingredient of curry is chilli pepper. The combination of spices depends on the gastronomic culture of the region where it is consumed, but also on the culinary habits of each family.

    Curry, massage, carry... what are the differences?

    Curry is presented in the form of curry powder or paste. In the West, powder is more commonly used, while red or green paste is more often used in oriental cuisine.

    Curry and massage are both spice blends, however, the "Massale" blend includes caloupilé leaves, an ingredient not found in curry. Carry is a dish named after the spice mixture that gives it its full flavour.

    Did you know that? Some curries can contain up to 36 different spices.

    The origins of curry

    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 offered to the gods.

    Massala was brought back from India by the English in the 18th century. In Europe, it is called curry, referring to the name of dishes in sauce called "Kari" in Tamil. Karis are dishes in fish, meat or vegetable sauce spiced with a mixture of spices.

    Curry nowadays

    Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Arab countries, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Reunion Island... there are as many recipes as curry as there are countries and even regions.

    Other uses of curry

    Curry has certain medicinal virtues, it is consumed as an infusion to treat colic.

    Each part of the curry tree has its own virtues:

    • Curry bark: it helps digestion and is a gastric fortifier. It relieves kidney pain and would even delay the appearance of white hair!
    • Curry leaves: they are used to heal skin rashes. If crushed, they would be an anti-venom. Fresh, they stop diarrhoea and in infusion, stop vomiting. Their juice is good for the eyesight.
    • Roots: like bark, they are useful for healing rashes
