With Thai cuisine, there are many distinct flavors. For instance, Thai spice. While it’s believed all Thai food is spicy, it’s important to know what you are getting yourself into. Here, our team is bringing you the history of one of the most famous Thai spices, curry.Â
The direct origin of curry goes back to India or Thailand. While there is evidence to support both claims, both are pretty similar in the concept of what it is and the level of heat behind it. The word curry comes from the Indian Tamil word â€śKari,â€ť which translates to a soup or sauce to be eaten with rice.
There are two different types of curry that people often confuse for one another. One is the curry leaf, which is an herb that is largely used in Indian dishes. On the other hand, curry powder is a large mixture of spices such as cumin, dry mustard, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, and sometimes more.
As far as the different types of curry throughout the world, no one knows the exact amount. Due to the idea of curry being a various mixtures of spices coming together, it makes the count nearly impossible.
With this, it is possible to mistake one type of curry for another as the two may look and taste the same, but they could be made entirely different. Not only is this because of the never-ending choices of spice you can incorporate, but also because of many countries around the world such as Asia, Iran, Afghanistan, and the United Kingdom making their variations of the dish as well.
When it comes to curry, Giant of Siam does not disappoint. Our team is passionate about what we do in the kitchen, which is showcased in the incredible flavor our curries provide.
