What is curry?

I came across this article about Indian curry and I had to share it because Indian food is reduced to one thing by many most foreigners – curry

Few excerpts –

” The word “curry” is widely misunderstood….In the South Asian mind, curry refers less to spice and more to the consistency of a dish…..To us, curry means “gravy.”

“In Tamil, the wordkari means a kind of gravy.”

  1. How true! Here in the US there is the common misconception that Indian food is “curry”. I finally took to explaining that curry only meant gravy and that there were many, many different types of gravy with very different spices.
