We need to talk. You’ve been seeing curry on the side for years, in the Indian buffet line, and between orders of pad see ew. You love the way it makes you feel, the way a bowl of creamy veggies and rice gets you, no questions asked. But still, you keep things casual. Relationships take work, after all — and you’re just not ready to bring curry home.

It’s time to get serious. On the coldest days, curry has always been there for you, warming you up from the inside out — and now, it wants to be part of your life. This fall, when you can’t look at another butternut squash, come home to one of these essential curry recipes, from Mauritian pumpkin to Japanese kare. You’ll choose your weapon — curry paste or powder — and then go wild: Spice things up with cloves and cardamom, or opt for ginger and basil…it’s your call. Any way you simmer it, you know it’s going to be good.
