A King was getting a palace built and visited the site regularly. On one such visit he was greeted with an alluring aroma of curry. He inquired and was informed that food was being prepared for the work force.
He ordered his cooks to find out what was being cooked. Later, the cooks told him it was just curry for the laborers and not fit for the royal table as it comprised raw waste from the royal kitchen and butchery.
The king ordered them to use wholesome material and prepare the same dish for him. They examined the ingredients – besides the inedible (unsuitable for the king’s table) meat and some simple spices, the curry included discarded dried-pulp (today we know it as mace) covering of the nutmeg seeds. The mace tastes and smells like a cross between nutmeg and coriander, tinged with citrus and cinnamon and has some olfactory-tickling similarities of nutmeg, mint, and basil because of the essential oils it contain.
The cooks finally presented the javitri-wala-maas* to the king.
