Curry was a staple in our household growing up thanks to my dad’s Trinidadian background and my mom’s Guyanese father and Bajan mother. She also lived in Jamaica for a while which added another element of curry to her repertoire. There is much debate among West Indian cultures about whose curry is the best – I have to admit, I like both. My mom makes her curry with tomato or tomato paste (decidedly the Trini way of making curry); and that’s how I’ve made mine for years until, one day, I was in the grocery and decided to try the Grace Jamaican Curry Powder. The bottle has a recipe on the back and I gave it a shot. No tomato required. When I’m in the mood for a more concentrated flavor, I go this route. Just don’t tell my mom.
