In the eyes of an Indian food blogger, the word “curry” is racist. It therefore calls for a renaming or a new definition.
After numerous species of birds, biscuits from well-known manufacturers and “Mohren pharmacies” have been renamed after accusations of racism, experts now focus on another term: “Curry”. “There is a saying that the food in India changes every 100 km, and yet we still use this generic term popularized by whites who couldn’t bother to find out the actual names of our dishes,” scolds food blogger Chaheti Bansal.
Lyse R. Morgenstein Fuerst, professor of religious studies at the University of Vermont and an expert on South Asia, is also certain that the word “curry” does not exist “in any South Asian language”.
For this very reason, it is now being asked to rethink the term “curry” and to define the dishes more precisely in the future, as reported by 24hamburg.de *.
