This Week’s Community Dinner: Lentil Coconut Curry
by Olivia Cheung
Anabel’s Grocery and the Office of Global Learning are hosting an International Community Dinner this Friday, March 17th at 6:30pm! We will be serving a vegetarian Lentil Coconut Curry dish.
The English word “curry” stems from the Tamil word “kari” and translates to a “sauce” usually containing spices and herbs. Spices found on the Indian subcontinent such as coriander, ginger, cumin, and garlic are commonly found in curries. Curries are common across South Asian cultures and vary depending on the region, foods available, history, and culture. For example, coastal regions incorporate seafood and coconut milk. Curry powder became popular in the 18th century when Indian merchants started making curry powder to sell to the British to be brought to Europe.
Comforting, hearty, and vibrant with flavor, curries are a great meal for a cold winter day! Serve atop rice, naan, or salad for a scrumptious vegetarian meal.
