Sorry - I didn't get a chance to reply to your comment on the Sorcery Saga post.

We decided to keep things simple with this question so rather than getting bogged down with the idea that curry is a British invention (which is a debatable historical point rather than a fact as the the word "curry" may have been taken from an Indian dialect word for "stew" (torkhari), or the word karai.

I've posted a new competition - this time for Y's: Memories of Celceta on the PS Vita. We only have one copy to give away and entry is much easier - check the post or the website for details.

Well, to be fair, Tandoori is a British invention. Curry could have come from a number of places in Asia, but it's not exclusively Indian. :)

Actually Tandoori isn't a British invention at all as the original clay ovens were used all across India for centuries - long before even Marco Polo's excursion's to China - but I'll admit that it does depend on what you consider "tandoori". The main addition from Western cultures to Indian cuisine is actually the chilli as it isn't native to South East Asia.

As for who came up with curry first, there's strong evidence to suggest that it originated in the Indian subcontinent and was adopted and adapted by other nations - much in the same way as martial arts. People tend to be believe that the latter originated in China, but historical evidence suggests that the various combat arts that are spread throughout South East Asia have their origins in India, Greece (in particular Sparta), Egypt, and even Mesopotamia.

It all comes down to the fact that India is old - even by the standards of China - and much of the culture, practices, and even the food have spread around the world through conquest, trade and simple curiosity from foreigners visiting the country. Like so many things though, once a country adopts something foreign they then claim it as their own invention. Long live the Empire.

Salve mi Amicus,

I have never claimed the painting was mine, have I? Please read the description, hate/flame comments on art defeats the purpose of art.

May Jupiter and Juno protect and guide you!

What hate/flame? I just thought people would like to know who the original artist was.
