Curry is a broad word used to describe a variety of dishes flavored with different spices. Although the concept of curry originated from India, curries exist throughout the world, and can be found in Japanese, Ethiopian, Thai, Caribbean, and German cuisines, among others. Virtually any spiced, sauce-based dish with vegetables and/or meat can be call a curry, but the popular variety we think of contains curry powder with high proportions of turmeric, cumin, and coriander seed.
The other familiar term, masala, is simply a spice mix; curry powder is in fact a masala. In countries like Pakistan that have numerous curry dishes, however, each has a specific name, and might include a range of spices such as fenugreek, cloves, ginger, hot pepper, and leaves from the curry tree, an herb native to India.
