Curry sauce offers nothing less than an exotic flavor explosion. Over the years, curry has meant many things. The word once described Indian food and then developed into a word used to refer to various savory dishes similar to stew, with a strong spice presence. Curry (at least some form of it) dates back to 1700 B.C. which is proved by tablets found near Babylon in Mesopotamia. Curry likely originated from India but original curry sauce was unlike the curry sauce we know today. It did not include spicy peppers since they were not native to India. Not much is known about 1700 B.C curry other than the possibilityof it being an offering to the gods but we do know that curry has been used in England since the 1300s. In the late 1300s curry was mentioned in a book about English cooking, gained a strong presence in Britain throughout the years and became the sauce containing the pungent and very delicious garam masala we are familiar with today.
