My home made isn't bad but I do know that finding some ingredients may be difficult (I cheat and use Pataks paste sometimes, which is great).
Perhaps a curry club is something I should start up when we're settled as way of meeting people and sharing ideas?
We, well the boss cooks a lot of Indian and Asian food indoors and getting the spices was a big problem. As already mentioned you can get spices from various sources if you're prepared to shop around and we used to supplement this by bring hard to find stuff back with us when we went to the UK.
Now you can get pretty much anything you need from here http://www.ingredient.es. We pop in and collect our stuff but they will also post to you. Prices are pretty good to.
