What does the word “curry” even mean? Curry’s provenance is perplexingly murky, but one way to grapple with this word’s flexibility is to embrace all the different dishes that go by this name.

Curry’s definition is malleable, adaptive to the environment it's in: My mom’s curry is different from my dad’s, and they’re both from the same part of India. And that's to say nothing of the variances between North Indian curry and South Indian curry, which are many shades different from any Massaman curry I’ve had from Thailand, or Japanese kare rice, or South African bunny chow.

Here are some of our finest curry recipes. Though most of them don’t taste anything like the curry I grew up eating at home, they're curries I love as much as I love my mother’s.
