The word curry is derived from kari (pronounced (ka-di), a Tamil word which means sauce and refers to various kinds of dishes common in South India that are made with vegetables or meat and usually eaten with rice. However, curry means “stew” in the English dictionary and the British traders who arrived at the Subcontinent used the term to name dishes which they thought resembled the stews they were used to. Nowadays, curry is used more broadly, especially in the West, to refer to almost any spiced, sauce-based dish cooked in various South East Asian styles.
Vikram and Jas Bajaj
Ace Curries to Go
Jasvir, or Jas as she is known by her friends, comes from the villages of Punjab in India where she grew up working in the fields with her parents. This is where she developed her taste for all things natural & wholesome, and realized the importance of being honest and open with all dealings in her life. Vikram comes from a more pampered background, which has given him a taste for all things exotic and a weakness for the finer things in life. Having come to Canada in 1997, he landed here with just a dream and a pocketful of nothing. He worked various positions, including a stint with White Spot. After a year, Vikram opened Ace Video & Grocery. Venturing into something different, he decided to work the kitchen and that was the start of Ace Curries To Go.
