Whats the main ingredients for a curry and what do you have to put in extra to make madras, tikka masala etc?

Main things you'll need are onions, garlic, ginger and green chillis to start with - then you'll need various spices depending out what curry you want to make. Basic spices you'll need to get started are coriander (seeds), cumin, turmeric, chilli powder, a good curry powder and garam masala. It's best to buy whole spices and grind them yourself. I'd recommend buying a good book - the ones by Pat Chapman are good. Once you mastered making them yourself, you won't want a greasy take away ever again. And ALWAYS have fresh coriander to garnish it with - it gives the perfect finish.
