WHAT IS CURRY?
I LOVE curry in all forms: tikka masala, Thai curry, peanut curry, all of it. However, “curry” is a very general term that can be used to describe many different dishes from various countries and cultures.
Curry originated in India and made its way across the world from there, resulting in different versions of the dish. Regardless of the dish, curry is typically a combination of meat and vegetables in a gravy-like sauce.
Curry powder is a mixture of spices that typically takes on a yellow hue due to the main ingredient, turmeric. You can read all about curry powder on The Spruce Eats.
JAMAICAN CURRY CHICKEN
Traditional Jamaican curry chicken is cooked slowly over low heat to allow the bold spices and flavors to develop. It’s said to have been brought to Jamaica by workers from East India in the 17th or 18th century. In this recipe, I use those same flavors to marinate the chicken but cook it quickly in the air fryer for a more modern take on the dish.
