I've use American-style, all-purpose curry powder before in very similar dishes and while it turns out ok, I've never been really happy with the flavor (I think it's the tumeric - I think American-style curry powders usually contain way too much for my preferences).

The important thing (or so I've read) is that you like the curry seasoning you choose to use - whether it's a curry powder or a paste.

I've tried higher quality curry powders, with better results, but mostly I've just learned that the curry pastes in a jar, usually taste a thousand times better to me than curry powders (and yet are still very convenient to use).
