Turmeric is used in curry powder, chicken bouillon, sauces, gravies, dry seasonings, backing mixes, processed cheese pickles, relishes, breading soups, beverages, and confections (Peter, 1999) in addition to its use in medicine, religious functions and as biopesticide. The genus Curcuma originated in the Indo-Malayan region (Purseglove, 1968). Considerable species diversity of Curcuma occurs in this region. However, about 40 species of the genus including C. longa are indigenous to India indicating the Indian origin (Velayudhan et al., 1999). The antiquity of turmeric dates back to the Assyrians of 600 bc. Ethnobotanical evidence indicates that the use of turmeric has been in India since very ancient days.

Gulai kepala ikan Fish head curry

On my first visit to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, many years ago, I was instructed that whenever a curried fish is served whole, the most honored guest must receive the head. In his or her turn, this person must show great pleasure and acknowledge the privilege gracefully. There is not a great deal of meat on the fish head, but the cheeks and eyes are considered delicacies. If I were hosting such a party, I would make sure that the head is cut off with the neck and the shoulders, if fish can be said to have these. Joachin, my Singaporean friend who gave me this recipe, tells me that what is really good in this dish is the sauce, which penetrates both the fish and the vegetables, which are usually okra and eggplants. In West Sumatra, my grandmother used to put pakis (edible fern shoots) into her fish curry. If you cannot find fish curry powder, use a mixture of 1 tbsp ground coriander, 2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp ground fennel seed, 72 tsp freshly...

The central plains are the heartland, dominating the country both politically and economically. Bangkok is at its center. The style of cooking here is the most familiar to nonThais a green curry of chicken, for instance, or red curries of many kinds. The south of the country winds sinuously around the Gulf of Thailand, so naturally this region's food is based on seafood. Shrimp, crabs, and fish are grilled or fried, and curries here are redolent of turmeric, coconut, and chilies.

How to make the Curries

We tend to use the minimum amount of food colourings, but some dishes (and some people as I have explained) demand them - for instance tandoori chicken would not, I am sure, would not be acceptable if it were any colour other than red. Chicken tikka masala is another dish which is expected to be a distinctive colour. For these occasions I have included colourings in my recipes where we would normally use them, but if you were really against them a little extra paprika and or turmeric produces good results.

Spice Mix Garam Masala

This spice mix is used both during cooking and as a last-minute addition to a dish.

Uses of herbs and spices

Herbs and spices have tremendous importance in the way we live, as ingredients in food, alcoholic beverages, medicine, perfumery, cosmetics, colouring and also as garden plants. Spices and herbs are used in foods to impart flavour, pungency and colour. They also have antioxidant, antimicrobial, pharmaceutical and nutritional properties. In addition to the known direct effects, the use of these plants can also lead to complex secondary effects such as salt and sugar reduction, improvement of texture and prevention of food spoilage. The basic effects of spices when used in cooking and confectionery can be for flavouring, deodorizing masking, pungency and colouring (Table 1.2). They are also used to make food and confectionery more appetizing and palatable. Some spices, such as turmeric and paprika, are used more for imparting an attractive colour than for enhancing taste. The major colour components of spices are given in Table 1.3. Because of their antioxidant and Paprika, turmeric,...

Turmeric root Turmeric Also known as curcuma (from its botanical name), turmeric is a rhizome with brown skin and bright orange flesh. When fresh, it has a subtle earthy, spicy flavor.

Kroeung Cambodian herbal paste

This is an all-purpose Cambodian herbal paste. Similar in many ways to Indian and, especially, Thai curry pastes, it belies the idea that Cambodia does not have curry pastes, or curries in general for that matter. Kroeungs come in several versions that include yellow (using additional turmeric), green (using green lemongrass leaves) and red (using red chilies), just like Thai curry pastes. It is essentially (or arguably) the foundation to many Cambodian hybrid curries, and contains seven main ingredients lemongrass, galangal, wild ginger (krachai), garlic, shallot, kaffir lime zest, and turmeric. Other more complex kroeungs may also include kaffir lime leaves, cilantro root, and chilies. For a basic curry base, stir-fry the paste with 1 tbsp Indian curry powder and 1 tbsp or more shrimp paste, until it becomes two shades darker. Add thick coconut milk and or stock and proceed as you would with other types of curries, adding meat, poultry, or seafood, and vegetables.

Tastings Americans prefer them spicier

The combined total from the hot spices, chilies and black peppers represent one-third of the total spice consumption in the U.S. in mid-1990s. One reason for the increase is the popularity of three hot cuisines, Mexican (particularly Tex-Mex), Cajun and Thai. Another reason is the large Mexican and Asian immigration. Cumin seeds, turmeric, dill seeds and fennel seeds are also gaining significantly. The most popular herbs are cilantro, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, tarragon, mint, dill and parsley.

O curry powder

It can refer to a spice mixture, a cooking process, or a particular dish. In India the spices included in a curry powder blend often change according to geographical region. Traditionally, the mixture is blended a la minute, while one is cooking. The notion of a ready-made or already mixed curry powder began in England. Brits returning from India wanted to duplicate the curries they had eaten there and in the subcontinent and, thus, developed an easy to use blend of spices. Such blends often contain coriander seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric, fenugreek seeds, cumin seed, red chilli flakes, ginger, cinnamon, black peppercorns, and cardamom seeds. For the greatest depth of flavor the individual spices should be dry sauteed before being ground. It is best to fry each spice separately as each will roast at a different rate. Curry differs from garam masala. Unlike curry powder, garam masala has no turmeric or chillis.

Ingredients may depend on the area of the world in which the curry was mixed. Curry is a staple of Indian and southeast Asian cuisine. It is used to flavor many meat-based dishes and soups. Curry powder adds a sweet, distinctive, and sometimes hot flavor to foods. A common use is in stews. Curry also complements the flavor of lamb. Because the flavor of curry may vary, many cooks prefer to grind their own. Beware of store-bought curry powders, which may contain mostly turmeric.
