Curry powder 50 gr. Sri Lanka
Curry (from Tamil kari) - seasoning from a mixture of spices based on turmeric root, which appeared, apparently, in India, by now widespread everywhere. Turmeric itself, having a strong smell, has a weak, inexpressive and partly unpleasant taste, so it is "improved" by adding other components. Curry has a mild taste (although there are sharp versions of the mixture) and a strong characteristic aroma. The classic mandatory component of the seasoning is the leaf of the curry plant (Murraya Koenig), however, due to the low availability, it is often replaced with fenugreek.
