It's more personal preference than anything else, go for the strength you prefer as long as it's an Indian Curry powder. Malay if you can find.
Wonderful! I'll look for the Rajah Curry Powder. My favorite curry powder is McCormick's Hot Madras Curry Powder. I'll try it in your recipe!

I use a dash of apple sauce in mine. So many non South Africans can't quite relate to the mixing of savoury and fruit, but as you have said, the way it is done, you hardly notice that there is fruit in when it is all combined. My hubby has a problem with dried fruit in bobotie, so I just use Mrs Balls regular or peach chutney and he loves it.

Here is the Recipe for the Yellow Rice that is traditionally served with Bobotie. Raisins really to go so well with this.

Yellow Rice. ( recipe from Rainbow Nation. )

Ingredients
2 cups of rice
cup raisins, soaked in water for 20 minutes, then drained
1 teaspoon of turmeric
a dash of salt
2 sticks of cinnamon
Instructions on how to make it
Place all the ingredients, including the raisins in about 750ml of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. If there is still excess water in the pot when the rice is tender, pour it out carefully.
Dot the rice with a few blobs of butter and give it a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar ( a little sugar and a little cinnamon powder, mixed together).
