This Southern Pepper Curry combines black pepper, curry leaves and fennel seeds with a harmonious tomato-based sauce that gives this dish a fragrance, punch and provenance that is truly unique.
Peppercorns were once known as "black gold" and were used by traders instead of money. It is still a prized spice and nowhere more so than on India's Malabar Coast.
Perhaps some of the most famous pepper-inspired dishes come from the Chettinads, an old castle of traders from Tamil Nadu and this Southern Pepper Curry is inspired by their spicy flavours.
It is fantastic with all meats as well as seafood. Vegetarians can try it with mushrooms, eggplant and hearty beans.
The Spice Mix
Black peppercorns for heat
Cassia for sweet warmth
Bay leaf for mellow fragrance
Clove for pungent sweetness
Green cardamom for freshness
Whole red chilli for clean heat
