Curry powder is a funny misnomer and is actually a British invention- somewhat resembling garam masala, the spice mixture MOST prevalent in North India. Curry powder was created to evoke the essence of Indian food, but in fact, is not used by authentic Indian cooks. The spice blend most often used in an Indian curry is garam masala.

Much of our confusion dates back to the days of British colonialism. The story goes that a British official, preparing to leave India and wanting to enjoy his favorite Indian dishes after he returned home, ordered his servant to prepare a mix of Indian spices. Thus, bringing curry with a dry powder to the attention of the British. It doesn’t help that commercially made curried powders often bear little resemblance to the fragrant spice mixtures prepared from scratch daily by native East Indian peoples.
