Curry powder is an Anglicization of the spices found in traditional Indian cooking; it is a mixture of spices rather than a spice in and of itself. Traditional Indian cooking focuses on sauces, and it is believed that the word "curry" is derived from the Tamil word for sauce, "kari." British colonists tried to market these Indian sauces by replicating blends of these spices, most commonly turmeric, cumin, coriander, and red pepper. This is why curry powder is never mentioned in Indian cookbooks or why certain curry sauces will taste remarkably different from others.
