I think "curry" is too - I would still pronounce it to rhyme with
"hurry" even though I have a British accent. I think in the presence
of accents it's not always sensible to look for a single "correct"
pronunciation - clarity of communication is the only really important
thing, and that will probably be maintained whatever you do with that
