Before I knew what Curry was.

Welcome to the pantry! This is where my mother kept all of our food/spices for all the meals we shared while we were living in India.

This is before I knew what the hell curry was.

Many of our dishes that have their own characteristics. Those dishes have their own names and aren't referred to as "curry".  It was the British who occupied our land for years that come up with this descriptor: Curry. I can go on all day why and how this is wrong and how it takes away from the importance of my culture and my people's beautiful history.  

To my close friends who want to try indian food please really learn what the food is actually called! Don't erase the origins of my people's food by categorizing it under "curry"! Respect the culture and decades of history behind it. 

Please comment below to let me know what you think.
