Jamaican Curry is a wonderful lesson in the interplay of flavors and how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In Jamaica, all the ingredients here are available in the wild or at the market. In the 1800s Jamaican curry was a kind of coconut rundown made by taking the jelly of a very young coconut, boiling it in its own water with a little cinnamon and adding curry powder to taste. Introduced by the British, it was not very common among poor Jamaicans. That was before the East Indians came to Jamaica as indentured servants. Today, curries are very much a part of Jamaican cooking. Curry shrimp, curry lobster and the world-famous Jamaican curry goat are popular all over the island.The ingredients are: Coriander, cumin, mustard, star anise, fenugreek, allspice, turmeric, orange juice powder, cayenne, vegetable base.
