About Madras Curry

The Madras curry originates from what was the Madras region in the south east of India and it’s a spicy curry that can be made with chicken, pork, beef and even mince beef or lamb as a Keema Madras. If you’re not a meat lover then you can also enjoy a Vegetable Madras which can be made using carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, turnip or swede or vegetables of your choice

Madras curry is considerably hotter than other western-style curry powder blends. Madras curry powder is not an Indian spice blend while it does use Indian ingredients. It is a formulation of those ingredients that is designed to suit English tastes and differs significantly from the spice blends used in Madras.
