Curry is one of most remarkable ingredients in Asian gastronomy, especially in the India and Thailand. This condiment is mainly used in the preparation of meat and seafood dishes; however, it is also frequently used in the preparation of vegetables and legume.
Curry is the result of a balanced combination of different herbs and dry spices, among those, the predominant ingredients are coriander, ginger, grains of pepper, garlic, cumin, hot pepper, mustard, nutmeg, and turmeric, the latter one is the basic ingredient that gives the curry the yellow colour.
