Read on to learn more about this cornerstone spice blend and its many possibilities.


History and Origins

Curry flavors originated in India where traditional blends known as “masalas” were used. While it resembles Garam Masala, curry powder as we know it in Western cuisine was invented for British colonizers as a way to simplify and recreate the prominent flavors of Indian cuisine. The popularization of curry powder in Europe expanded the reach of Indian flavors in global cuisine.


Flavor and Composition

A well-balanced curry powder blend is warm and sweet, with earthy undertones and a slight bitterness. Our PSC Curry Powder begins with a base of traditional Indian spices such as turmeric, cumin, coriander, and chili powder to achieve authentic curry flavor. Each spice contributes something special to our blend: turmeric provides its vibrant yellow color and earthy flavor, cumin offers a smoky quality, chili peppers add a kick of heat, and onion and garlic deliver a savory flavor base. This ideal combination of spices results in an aromatic blend with a robust flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to any dish.

There is a wide spectrum of curry powder recipes on the market today, including regional alternatives such as Japanese curry powder and Jamaican curry powder. Recognizing its many possible variations, we developed our PSC Curry Blend to be versatile enough to appeal to a global palate while maintaining the dependability of classic curry flavors. Because of this, our PSC Curry Blend is well suited to compliment both traditional and modern dishes alike.
