Definitely get madras curry powder and coriander (seeds or ground) and you can make garam masala. that is what I did. Also ginger, garlic and some of the basic spices are needed.

Garam Masala

This homemade spice mixture is much darker and more flavorful than commercial varieties. Toasting the spices is a crucial step that gives the masala a deep, roasted flavor. Cardamom pods are available at Middle Eastern and Indian markets.

1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
2 teaspoons black peppercorns
12 cardamom pods
8 whole cloves
1 (2-inch) cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Place the first 6 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook until spices smoke, becoming fragrant and turning dark, shaking pan constantly (about 5 minutes). Stir in nutmeg. Remove from heat; cool completely. Place spice mixture in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground. Store in an airtight container.

Garam Masala

2 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 tablespoons cumin seeds
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
1 1/2 teaspoons whole cloves
3/4 teaspoon cardamom seeds
1 (1-inch) cinnamon stick

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat; add all ingredients. Cook 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring frequently. Place spice mixture in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground.

Yield: about 1/3 cup
