Curry is a dish of meat or vegetables cooked in a richly spiced sauce. The word curry comes from the Tamil word kari that’s why it is believed that curry originates from India; but there is also evidence that English cooks have been making curry dishes since the late 1300s.

The spice blend is also said to have anti-inflammatory and natural cleansing agents since it contains turmeric, cumin, and coriander.
