Remove the fishy smell: India is the birthplace of curry. Because people like to eat mutton, the pungency and fragrance of curry can cover up the fishiness. Curry is not only delicious with all kinds of meat, but also super match with fresh fish, shrimp and crab.

Appetite: Japanese like to eat spicy in summer, mainly to increase the secretion of saliva and gastric juice, accelerate gastrointestinal peristalsis, and then stimulate appetite. However, the Japanese are not as spicy as the Southeast Asian people, so they use fruits and vegetables to cook a strong curry sauce. Bibimbap, noodles, soup, and even fried stuffing into bread are common dishes.

Add changes: in the 19th century, Hong Kong and Macao became European colonies, and Indians and food materials moved in, changing the food style of the two places. People who often go to tea restaurants must be familiar with curry fish eggs, curry beef brisket, curry squid and noodles. Curry is integrated into Chinese Cantonese cuisine, which enriches the catering culture of Hong Kong and Macao.
