You have a lot of herbs and spices already - the only ones I might be tempted to add are dried oregano and cinnamon - both powder and sticks

As for the storecupboard - I would go for miso paste, rice vinegar, couscous, quinoa and soy sauce in addition to what you have

What about:
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Vanilla pods
Tamarind paste
Soy sauce
White wine vinegar

Capers

You need chipotle, it's smoky chilli and gives amazing flavour to stews, enchiladas etc.

Asafoetida for tomato based curries.
