If you have garam masala, cumin, and turmeric on hand, you can always make a great curry. Having a few other spices like curry powder, cardamom, and coriander can really help round out your ability to make a great dish on the spur of the moment.
The best part is that most of the curries you make can be done in a single pot like this Sweet Potato Curry. If you look for similar recipes, there are dozens of variations, and many use lentils instead of the chickpeas. If you do use lentils, add them later in the cooking, after the dish has already cooked for 20 minutes and at the step where you uncover the pot.
