    Discovering Curry in the Caribbean

    In September we are celebrating Curry in the Caribbean Forum and the wonderful dishes we can make adding these fragrant spices.
    Although curries in some form appear in the cuisines of most of the Caribbean, they are particularly prevalent in the countries where the East Indian population is the greatest: Jamaica, Martinique, and Trinidad and Tobago where people from India settled in the mid-19th century. Colombo is a Creole curry from Martinique and Guadeloupe.

    Curries are highly seasoned gravy-based dishes originating from India. Many Caribbean cooks use prepared spice mixtures that include coriander, cumin, turmeric, black and cayenne peppers, and fenugreek, among others. Caribbean cooks also commonly add allspice to their curries.

    Way before I ever heard of Indian or Thai curry, I was tasting and enjoying Chicken Curry from Trinidad. It was a taste sensation brand new for me; this is probably where I began my journey of exploring and discovering those exotic flavors of far way lands.

    This week I am featuring Chicken Curry; here are a few recipes I found here on Food.com

    Caribbean Chicken Curry With Rice and Peas
    Caribbean Mini Banana and Pineapple Curry
    Chicken and Sweet Potato Caribbean Stew
    Caribbean Chicken Picadillo in Tortillas
    Caribbean Chicken Soup
    Slow Cooker Chicken Curry
    Do you have a favorite curry recipe you want to share?
    Next week we are cooking Fish and Seafood with our curry.
    Happy Cooking!

    When traveling to the Caribbean, be sure to look for "Trinite" branded coconut curry seasoning. This curry comes out of Trinidad and is sold in gift shops as well as preferred supermarkets across the region.

    Love that you can suggest a great curry product; there are many on the market and they are not all created equal.
    Do you have a special recipe using this curry that you could share with us? Thank you for dropping in.

    I hate curry! At least the "traditional" type-I think. I had a roomie who was from India. I had to evacuate the house when she was making curry, so I guess that's the type I'm thinking of.

    Are there curries that are not so, well......curry? Coconut curry made me wonder.

    I never heard of coconut curry before; I am also curious about this product. Right now I am into coconut oil and learning about that.

    I know there are many curry recipes with coconut milk included.
    From I read Caribbean curry is not quite the same as Indian curry.
    The natives here incorporated their own spices and products that grew on their islands to make Caribbean curry.

    Please correct me if this is wrong. I am learning as I go here.
