Curry is not a single spice it is a mixture of several finely ground spices. It can have some or all of the following: turmeric, ginger, coriander, cumin, chilli powder and pepper.
You can make your own (like this simple one I did in this recipe), or buy a pre-made one from the store. Either way is good – its all about your own personal taste!
