From the Test Kitchen

In so many areas of the world, curry is a way of life. Because of the intricate, ancient spice trade routes, different spices characterize curries in areas where they landed long ago. We created this recipe using ingredients that celebrate the home flavors of the various curry destinations—coconut milk used in Southeast Asia, curry powder in the style of India and Bangladesh, nuts and dried fruit like in North Africa and the Middle East, and even some vegetables from China.
