No reason I can think of not to use rump steak if you have some to hand; the only thing to remember is that beef tends to soften, then firm, then soften again when cooked, so you are either going to have to cook it fairly quickly or leave it to stew, nothing in-between.  As for spices, turmeric, cumin, coriander and perhaps fenugreek,would be my choice for a mild curry.  I have never cooked a curry without any chillies, so I can't vouch from personal experience as to how it might work out ...

I used to cook Collops, a Scots recipe that had thin slices of steak cooked in a sauce. It might give you some idea of cooking times if you can find something similar.
If I happen across the recipe I’ll post up the method and cooking times.

There would be no reason you couldn't use rump in a curry, but I probably wouldn't for two reasons. Rump is better cooked on a barbecue or grill or when roasted as a whole piece. Secondly, there are cuts of beef that make better curry and are cheaper. Chuck, blade or gravy / shin beef when slow or pressure cooked make good curry. It's not quite as bad as eye fillet or sirloin used in a curry but not far short.  Borderline decision for me. If I really wanted a curry and all I had was rump, I guess I could do it but I probably wouldn't.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?
