The Devil Curry as its name suggests, is a rich and fiery hot dish, prepared with either Beef, Mutton, lamb, Chicken, Pork or Eggs and lots of chilies. In the earlier days, Wild Boar, Venison and Rabbit were also made into the Devil Curry. The Devil Curry is a modified version of the Jal Frazie that originated during the Colonial Era, where the left over Turkey and Chicken Roasts were converted into Devil Curries or Fries by giving them a makeover the next day with the addition of a few spices.
