The Product

CP44 - Worlds Best Curry Powder Project started 19.11.2011 in Denmark and the mission was clear!

I started by testing a lot of the existing curry powders on the market.With these taste profiles in mind I traveled to Kerala in India. The origin of some of the key ingredients in a curry powder. When I returned to Denmark I started the real development work.

An international taste panel was assembled and samples were sent all around the world. The feedback has been an essential part of the development process. 

The Ingredients

It is one of the most complex curry powders going to be produced in the world, containing no less than 44 different spices, herbs, fruits, vegetables!

The foundation of the taste is based on the typical spices used in a Madras type curry powder. Turmeric, coriander seeds, cumin, fenugreek, black pepper...

On top of this I have worked with all the 5 basic tastes. Sweetness, sourness, saltiness, bitterness, and umami.
Finding these tastes in natural ingredients and giving the curry powder a really balanced taste.

I have also focused on providing fruity and herbal notes to the blend giving it freshness. A have chosen a medium heat from4 different types of chili.

The curry powder also contains the world’s most expensive spice. Saffron. Trips have been made to Kerala in India to find the best and most authentic spices from the origin, but many special ingredients have been sourced worldwide too.

The Verdict

Is it the World’s best then ?

I did put up very high standards in this project and it is only fair that people ask!
Basically I wanted to create the “Curry Powder” which people will recommend each other, if they are asked to point out a really good one! Wether you live in Copenhagen, London or Tokyo. Or anywhere else for that matter. Impossible to say if it is the best!

It will always be subjective to the person tasting and their preferences. I am not claiming it to be! We will leave it to our customers to decide !
