Ingredient Spotlight: Sweet Curry

Our Curried Chicken Breasts with Bok Choy & Basmati Rice dish features PeachDish's very own sweet curry blend. When we say "sweet," we are simply referring to a curry without hot spices. Our sweet curry blend also contains a dash of sugar. All of this talk leads us to the burning question, "Just what is curry?"

While a wide range of different curries exist, this dish is always an expression of a combination of herbs or spices with the addition of hot chillies. Originating in India and Southeast Asia, curry's flavors vary depending on the region in which it is cooked. A curry dish may contain meat, fish, shellfish or be vegetarian. This dish can either be "wet" and served in a sauce based with anything from coconut milk to dal, or it can be "dry" when cooked with only a small amount of liquid. Curry powder was not developed until the 18th century and was often sold by Indian merchants to Bristish army men. Vadouvan is one such curry blend.
