Curry Posted by on May 17, 2009 in Hindi Language

Curry (सालन) is the most accessible Indian food outside of India. I may be biased, but it’s a food that even non-Indians enjoy. Curry (सालन) can be found all over the world including Japan, the U.S., England, and Southeast Asia. The ingredients and the taste may differ from country to country, but the common consensus seems to be that lots of people like curry (सालन).

For those of you who may not have tried curry (सालन), it’s a thick sauce, kind of like a gravy sauce with vegetables. It’s commonly consumed with white rice and sometimes chunks of chicken or beef is added.

Why is curry (सालन) loved everywhere around the world? That’s a hard question to answer. I personally like it because it tastes good. Of course, I’m referring to my mother’s curry (सालन). The instant ones aren’t too bad, but nothing beats my mother’s homemade curry (सालन).

My favorite curry (सालन) contains soft potatoes, chicken, tumeric, cumin, and red peppers. I like my curry (सालन) slightly spicy with chunks of chicken and rice.

Here’s where I’d like the readers of this blog to participate. What is your favorite type of curry (सालन)? What are the ingredients? Where in the world are you from? I’m sure there are all sorts of interesting and delicious types of curry dishes that I’ve never tasted. Come on, don’t be shy! Just leave a short comment in the comment section of this post.
