Curry is a very popular spice blend in Indian cooking. In the basic recipe you’ll always find turmeric, the spice largely responsible for curry's flamboyant colour. Depending on the recipe (there are so many), it may also contain cinnamon, ginger, coriander, cumin, cardamom, nutmeg, pepper, and cloves.
