I don't. I mix my own spices

I usually:

fry some garlic, onion, chilli and ginger then add say 1tsp cummin, 1tsp corriander, 1tsm garam masala and 1tsp tumeric (you can vary the flavour by adding a little less of either the cumin or corriander, or other stuff for that matter) and fry for a minute or so

Then I add my harder vegies (potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot) and some stock and some red lentis (thickens the mix) and simmer (keeping an eye on the liquid level) until they're almost done, then add your other vegies like peas and whatever.

When it's nearly all cooked, add some coconut milk (or if you're sneaky, some milk powder mixed with a bit of boiling water and some coconut essence) stir through and serve - but don't let it boil if you've used the milk powder, it sourt of goes funny looking.

it's pretty good. I like it with Lamb if you want meat, or add some chickpeas (or maybe tofu) if you don't want meat and still want a protein hit

Hey, I just wanted to say that my partner does a great curry, just by blending a whole bunch of herbs and spices together in the food processor (not unlike the spices Dawn has listed).... we use a HEAP of corriander though (fresh as I was growing it). Instead of coconut milk (SO HIGH IN FAT) we use evaporated coconut milk. As in the evaporated milk brand, but it has a lite coconut flavoured one. It is really really good (tasty). And lower in fat by far!

You could also just get some curry paste from the shelf (a massamum is a non-hot one).... fry it off a bit, add vegies and the evaporated coconut milk stuff.
