A bit more on the above-mentioned curry house:

“London’s first Indian restaurant, the Hindostanee Coffee-House, opened in 1809, and [by] 1850 curry was a well-known and popular dish on many menus.”
- The Independent 30 October 1999 (my emphasis)

A fuller and fascinating account of the Hindostanee is here:

Came across this in a letter to the editor signed by "A School Girl":

Currie Powder

One ounce ginger, one ounce mustard, one ounce pepper, three ounces coriander seed, three ounces tumeric, one-half ounce cardamoms, one-fourth ounce cayenne pepper, one-fourth ounce cummin seed; pound fine and sift. This can be prepared at any druggist's.

Source: Chicago Daily Tribune 17 Mar 1877 p 11

Curry powder sourced from a pharmacy / chemist / druggist / apothecary ? what do you tell the doctor to get a prescription?

A cure for constipation, maybe?
