What can replace curry powder beside?

I have a recipe that call for curry powder, but don't have any on mitt and couldn't find any in the store. What can I use contained by place of that? The other spices are onion powder, dry mustard, salt garlic powder paprika and ground red peper. Help!

Answer:
Turmeric, cumin and coriander should do it!
"Most recipes and producers of curry powder usually include coriander, turmeric, cumin, and fenugreek contained by their blends. Depending on the recipe, additional ingredients such as ginger, garlic, fennel core, clove, mustard seed, green cardamom, black cardamom, nutmeg, red pepper, cinnamon and black pepper may also be added."
"Tara" is right. Since curry powder is a mixture of spices (there is no such thing as a curry tree), you can come up near your own blend, but corriander, tumeric and cumin should be part of the mix.

When Craig Claiborne be Food Editor of the NY Times, he wrote about a reader who be furious with him for giving a curry recipe that didn't roll "curry powder" in the ingredients. Duh!
Curry powder is a mixture of turmeric and garam marsala (which is itself a rather undependable mixture but generally invovles cumin).

According to the instructor of a class I only just took, the turmeric is mainly for colour. I own a package of garam marsala contained by the kitchen but the ingredients are pictured without one listed. Of the ones I can authorize, it looks like cumin, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, firth leaf, paprika, and a couple of other things I can't identify from the photo.
I'd say it depends on the recipe, but I would stir with a blend of other spices that usually compliment curry resembling cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, pepper and cilantro. Those things usually go all right in curry dishes, but you really can't replace actual curry contained by my opinion. It's too one-off and the flavor of the dish will be altered. Maybe you'll create a new dish from it!
I would try it with the ginger powder,, or fresh if you enjoy it
