Aleta Curry doing a page on curry. Brilliant :) Meg Ireland 18:24, 6 February 2008 (CST)

Lemme guess: Meg Ireland is what, Japanese? :)
CZ, you gotta love it!

'Currie' is only a surname, I think, as in British politician Edwina. It's not in my Oxford as an alternative. But (to borrow Aleta's catchphrase) what do I know? Ro Thorpe 18:39, 6 February 2008 (CST)

Just checked: definitely was an alternative spelling of the dish, Ro, according to Webster's, though whether you'd find it written thus today, I'd bet "no". Aleta Curry 19:20, 6 February 2008 (CST)
OK, I'll put in a 'formerly' then. Ro Thorpe 09:36, 7 February 2008 (CST)

Just to confuse things...

Indian groceries sell something called "curry leaves", which are rather like a bay leaf. There is something called the "curry plant" or "kari plant", which I've grown but is completely different; it has grayish-white leaves and a distinct turmeric smell, but you can only use it in cold dishes as the flavor is destroyed by heat. Works fine in raita.
