| Simple, simple, simple and easy. There's something about "Curry Powder" that I just love! It's a very specific flavor, which is odd due to the fact that it's a blend of multiple spices, different companies do it differently and there's no clear origin for the concept.|
Yet, when you think of "Curry Powder", you pretty much know you're going to get a yellow powder with a strong taste of cumin, coriander, ginger, fenugreek, and turmeric. All sorts of other things can be added, like cardamom, cinnamon, mustard seed, all sorts of chilies, cloves, asafetida, fennel, caraway, pepper, yada yada yada.
The flavor that Westerners have grown accustomed to is said to come from the British, during the colonial rule of India, as a means for approximating the taste of Indian cuisine, at home. There are other stories, but ... the British seemed to have had a heavy hand in it. In Indian homes, there are literally as many curry powder varieties and blends are there are possible combinations of spice.
In any event, these simple and tasty skewers would be delicious perched on a simple salad, with perhaps a few pieces slices of orange, or some thin slices of raw sweet onion, bell peppers and cilantro. Something clean, with a touch of sweet!
