Curry Omm- The real Indian Flavor in Playa!
For those not familiar with Indian Cuisine as myself, living in Playa has opened my eyes and palate to so many new things, without leaving my country I have met people from all over the world, learned about their cultures and best of all eaten food from all over.
Last night I was invited to a place I have been hearing about for a while called Curry Omm, all my friends had gone and always said that food was amazing, for me Indian food was new, I had never had it before.
So if Indian food is new to you, here are some useful things to know!
Curry:Curry (/ˈkʌri/, plural curries) is a dish whose origins are in South and Southeast Asian cuisines. The common feature is the incorporation of complex combinations of spices or herbs, usually including fresh or dried hot chillies. Some limit the use of the term curry to dishes prepared in a sauce,but curries may be “wet” or “dry”. A curry dish may be spiced with leaves from the curry tree, but many curries do not have this ingredient.
