What does "curry favour" mean?

Sriranjan G said: (Dec 10, 2013)  
CURRY FAVOUR means to praise someone, especially someone in authority, in a way that is not sincere, in order to get some advantage for yourself.

Eg: He's always trying to CURRY FAVOUR with the boss.

What about seek favour?

Naaaa said: (May 18, 2016)  
Then what about seek favour?

Ulala said: (Jul 6, 2016)  
Seek means to expect or ask a favour. The correct usage in this case would be "seek favour 'from' the corrupt".

Buddy said: (Sep 21, 2016)  

Seek favour means to ask for favour. But here the actual thing is about to praise not to ask favours.

What about cook favour, extract favour and display favour?
