In discussion with curry lovers (even some from India and Malasya) 
there seems to be a common agreement that curry spices must be 
"cooked" or "fried" or "sautee"......
It seems that curry powder is "raw"..so my suggestion is that you try 
some soya sauce before you try oil.....if that is too strong still,  dilute 
with water....
