curry plant?

So I bought a curry plant from lowes...knowing nothing about it but hoping I can cook with it. But turns out...I cant? It doesnt taste of curry but is there anything I can still use it in? i planted it next to my herbs...should I move it?

Yes, it has it's uses.

curry plant

As Kisal's article points out there's no such thing as an actual curry plant, i.e. one plant from which you could harvest curry, because curry is a blend of spices including turmeric, coriander, cayenne and others.
