Madras curry is a spicy curry which originates in the South of India and is named for the city of Madras, now known as Chennai. The spicy and piquant Madras curry ended up being a big hit with British colonists in the region, and it is abundantly available in Britain as a result.

Classically, people think of Madras curry as being much hotter than other curries, although it can actually be quite variable in terms of heat and can be used with a wide variety of vegetables or meats ranging from chicken to lentils.  

Curry can also be added to cooking vegetables and is great when combined with tomatoes, saffron and cream. Blend Curry with some melted butter and brush on fish before grilling or broiling. Curry is also good on roasted potatoes.

“Madras curry” means many different things to Indians, and as a result you have a great deal of leeway with ingredients and the level of spice that you want to use.  The following recipe is one Herbie makes on Saturdays for Sunday night dinner. This Hemphill family recipe has been a favorite of cooks for over 30 years.
