In the same skillet, melt 6 tbsp unsalted butter over medium. Stir in 2 tbsp curry powder, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp cayenne. Cook 1 minute and remove from burner. Cover to keep warm.
In a very large lidded pot, stir oil and popcorn kernels over medium. Cover with lid slightly off-center to release steam. Cook as per package directions until most of the kernels have popped.
Pour butter into a large bowl, add popcorn and raisins and toss until coated. Stir in cashews until well mixed.
