Recipes for curries vary almost more than any other dish, which is great because you can hardly go wrong. Curries make delicious use of last night’s roast pork, chicken, beef, or seafood, and they are a wonderful way to serve just vegetables as a main course. Use two cups of cooked meat, as in our family staple here, eggplant and chicken curry; it’s Brendan’s favorite. Or make a curry of cauliflower florets and sugar snap peas as a meatless variation. Either way, make it as spicy as you wish, tasting as you go, adding small amounts of curry powder and chile paste until the heat is just right for you. Curry powder is a combination of spices whose potency varies with the manufacturer; some have more cumin and coriander, others more ginger and chili powder. Since this isn’t a book about the nuances of South Asian cooking, I’ll not insist you make your own, but I do hope you’ll sample a few curry powders to find your favorite. As for rice, use what you have, but I love basmati and jasmine rice. You can even use brown rice.

Fish and Vegetable Curry
This recipe has many variations: To sweeten it up, add shredded carrots, baby peas, corn kernels, or sugar snap peas. To spice it up, add ginger, minced hot peppers, fresh lemongrass, chile oil, hot sauce, or cayenne. To bulk it up, add cabbage, cauliflower, kale, or chard. You can use any type of fish fillet in this recipe. Shrimp, scallops, and crab meat also work well. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time. For a more stew-like consistency, make the rice separately and serve the vegetable curry over the rice.

Ketchup is one of Amercia's favorite condiments so you may be thinking, if it ain't broken, why fix it? We're not trying to fix it , although we are suggesting a little oomph to our beloved sauce. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks to chef Duran from The Food Networks' s Ham on the Street and TLC's Ultimate Cake Off, we have a bold ketchup recipe to mix things up a bit. The spice we're adding is madras curry powder. The piquent peppery flavor it provides to ordinary ketchup will surely have your guests take notice (in a good way) this barbecue season.  This recipe combines the powder with 100% natural store-bought ketchup but if you're feeling more ambitious, you can make homemade ketchup and then add whatever spices to really jazz up an otherwise typical condiment.

Sweet Potato Coconut Curry
This simple curry dish comes together quickly and has a big payoff when it comes to flavor and presentation. Curry powder packs a punch in the spice department and it’s a weapon to  keep on hard for a weeknight dinner when you want to throw together a dish  that varies from your regular  routine. This recipe has just the right balance of sweet and heat, and the sweet potatoes add so much flavor and text that you don’t notice the lack of any meat. (Just ask my husband!) – Kelsey Nixon

Just to clarify, this isn't a curry recipe, it's a recipe for curried rice.

This dish always seems to get a "wow" when we serve it. It also takes less than 15 minutes to make, thanks to jarred Thai green curry paste, which is one of our pantry staples. Yes, fresh curry paste is superior, but we can’t always find lemongrass, Thai ginger, Kaffir lime, and bird’s eye chiles, and grinding them is a whole ‘nother story. Recommended brands include Mae Ploy and Maesri. Feel free to substitute different vegetables, such as thinly sliced carrots, sugar snaps, or frozen peas, in place of the green beans.

Japanese Curry
The truth is that this is not a very pretty dish and never will be. But it's good, so good. I've served it over Japanese short-grain rice but like it best when I use basmati… that slight nuttiness only adds to the overall flavor. Don't let this ugly duckling fool you; make this dish!

Okra Curry
Okra is a popular vegetable in Sri Lanka. Preparing it in this manner minimizes the stickiness, but make sure it is well stir-fried well before adding the liquids.
