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).
