Poppy Seeds - regular vs. white for Curry Powder recipe

r

I want to make a curry seed recipe which includes 11 ingredients.
The 12th ingredient, white poppy seeds is approximately 1/5 amount of the whole amount.

I've understood that white poppy seeds are used (instead of blue) for the thickening when using it as a curry sauce. I understand that white poppy seeds will not flavor the powder as blue poppy seeds will.

My concern is whether or not to make a special order or trip to find these white poppy seeds. Is it necessary for use.
Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
