Madras Curry powder is actually a pulverized blend of up to 20 spices, herbs and seeds. Among those most commonly used are cardamom, chiles, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, fennel seed, fenugreek, mace, nutmeg, red and black pepper, poppy and sesame seeds, saffron, tamarind and turmeric (the latter is what gives curried dishes their characteristic yellow color). Madras Curry is an old and venerable spice, and although the familiar yellow powder might seem out of place in the world of modern spices.
Curry powder typically has a rich, earthy and pungent flavor with many citrus-like overtones. The word, Curry, is said to be derived from the Tamil word, Kari, which is the name that they used for their spicy sauce. Curry differs greatly, depending on its region of origin, in both taste and content.
