W.T.F : CURRY .
Have you ever took a trip to an Indian restaurant and wondered what the strong smell was? Its most likely curry. Curry is actually a mixture of spices that are typically used in dishes from different countries such as India and Jamaica. Curry over time contained more turmeric than any of the other spices it had in it and it was generally used to give more flavor to really bland foods. Curry is always assumed to be spicy but it all depends on what you put into the curry to flavor it. A traditional Indian or Jamaican curry consist of Garam Masala, fenugreek leaves, coriander and of course turmeric. A traditional Thai curry also known as a yellow curry consist of galangal, ginger,dried crushed chili (yellow or red), ground cumin, cinnamon, white pepper and of course turmeric. Try curries from different cultures and see if you can taste the difference.
