Indian Caribbean  Curry Paste

For quick and easy curry dishes with meat, fish and vegetables

Hindoestaanse kerriepasta

The Indian curry paste is a masala. A mix of turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, caraway and mustard seed.

The Indian population came to the Caribbean as contract laborers. They made their own masala mix at home and are proud of this secret curry powder mix to make their famous curry dishes with pumpkin, veggies, chicken or shrimp. Our curry paste is an authentic recipe from the family of the owner of Sorgh & Hoop.  Inspiration for  quick and easy recipes with vegetables, poultry, meat, fish or shrimp you find on this page.
