The best curry powder we've tasted so far. The GREEN CAN is easy to spot on the shelves. At the top of the can it says "By appointment to H.E. the Governor of Bombay" and "Estd. 1883". When the can is opened, a tight plastic seal must be broken to access the contents, which are tightly packed and very fresh smelling and tasting. Rich, warm taste --- no acridity; all flavors blend together. Contents 4.4 oz, 125 gms. Cost, in Los Angeles, California in May 2002, US$1.99.

The Spices in Curry Powder

Fenugreek

From _Back to Eden_ by Jethro Kloss (an herbal book) it says,

"Botanical Name: Trigonella foenum graecum. Medicinal Properties: Mucilaginous, farinaceous.

"Excellent made into a poultice for wounds and inflammations. Grind the seed, make into a thick paste, mix with powdered charcoal. The charcoal makes the poultice more effective. Treating ulcers and swellings in this manner will prevent blood poisoning. The tea is an excellent gargle for sore throat. The seed is jelly-like when moistened and has a very cooling effect on the bowels, lubricates the intestines, and is very healing. The tea is excellent taken in fevers. The seed boiled in soybean or nut milk is very nourishing." (p. 239-240)

At the Gold Star India Website it says:

"Fenugreek is one of the earliest spices known to man. Ancient Egyptians used it as a food, medicine and an embalming agent. Fenugreek has a strong, pleasant and quite peculiar odour reminiscent of maple. The spice is available in its whole and powdered forms as well as in the form of extracted oil, which is extensively used in perfumery."

Turmeric (Tumeric)

From http://www.essiac-info.org/Pets/pets.html

[Note: this website is a discussion on treating dogs with herbs] "I gave both dogs Turmeric, which in large enough doses is supposed to prevent benign fatty tumors or even get rid of them. They liked Tumeric, it is the principal ingredient in curry powder. The vets who discussed this on an internet group said to give it to them until they refused to eat the food and then back off. However, I gave them only a ½ teaspoon each twice a day."

A must-see ~ The Great Warming.

Definitions

Curry: as used in India, this simply means "sauce"; Indian foods made with sauces are thus all "curries"

Curry Powder: a readily-available blend of spices which is a Western approximation of Indian spice blends, and typically contains turmeric, coriander, chillies, cumin, mustard, ginger, fenugreek, garlic, cloves, salt, and any number of other spices

Masala: In India and her neighbors, a blend of powdered spices, of a specific type for a specific type of dish; said to be about 100 kinds of masalas in Indian cooking

Garam masala: A readily-available masala composed of delicate, heat-sensitive spices; thus, it is added at the end of cooking, after the flame has been turned off (see left)

Curcumin: Confusion exists in present usage of this word; Curcumin is the name for turmeric in many countries; however, expensive products called "Curcumin" are now being sold with the vitamins at health food outlets, and research on curcumin abounds in current medical literature. Some say that curcumin is the yellow oils that give turmeric its yellow color, and which are also used as both food coloring and textile dyeing. Others call these yellow oils "curcuminoids" or "curcumin extract." Curcumin has nothing to do with "Cumin" spice (see below). See the Curcumin page

Curcuminoids: Chemicals in turmeric that are being studied for their physiological effects; one group of curcuminoids comprises a potent yellow-orange volatile oil (see Curcumin Extract below); this oil contains three compounds called turmerone, atlantone, and zingiberone, among other substances

Curcumin Extract: The term used by Indian pharmacists to denote the potent and expensive yellow-orange oil which is the dye substance extracted from turmeric, used both for food coloring and for textile dye; has been used for centuries in India

Curry Leaves: A plant with small, dark green leaves (about 1 inch long) that give a mild flavor to Indian food; usually used fresh, not dried; they are sometimes included in Curry Powder, but do not give Curry Powder its name

Cumin: A small, warm-climate annual plant of which the seeds are used; often mistranslated as "caraway" in curry recipes due to similarity of the Indian words for both cumin and caraway, jeera, as well as nearly-identical appearance of the seeds; assume that "caraway" means "cumin" in curry recipes; "Cumin" has nothing to do with "Curcumin" (see above)

Chilli: Red chillies, also called Red Pepper or Cayenne Pepper in America

Chilli Powder: In Asia/Europe, the powder of pure red chillies -- this would be called Red Pepper or Cayenne Pepper in America; American "Chilli Powder" is a very different blend of spices, including cumin and with very little red chilli in it, used in Chili con carne, barbecue and "Texas" style cooking

Haldi or Haldie: The Indian name for Turmeric

Turmeric: A plant of which the root resembles ginger, and is used extensively in India, which produces almost the whole world's supply, as well as consumes 80% of that supply; botanical name is curcuma longa; is native to Southeast Asia, from Vietnam to the humid hilly regions of Southern India; Indian name Haldi
