Fridge-Clearing Curry Refinements?

I'm making a fridge clearing chicken curry tomorrow (generic type, spices, coconut milk, peanut oil and ghee, carrots and onion and peas and whatever ends of greens or stay tomato we have) and I was wondering what I could do to dress it up? Stuff like grinding and roasting whole spices or adding toasted nuts. Things you could do if you wanted an easy fridge-clearing curry recipe but also had some time to refine and fuss over the little touches. [more inside]

What party/snack food can we make with Japanese Curry mix?

We are trying to clean out our pantry in advance of a house move, and want to use as much as possible to make snacks for our goodbye-old-house party. One of the things in our pantry is a box of S&B Japanese Curry mix (medium hot). Given that a big pot of curry isn't really a good finger food, what would you suggest we make with it? (For those who are not familiar with this ingredient, it is not a powder, but more like a stew/sauce base.)

Recipes to use Patak's curry paste

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I now am the proud owner of a jar of Patak's Madras Curry Paste (hot) and a jar of Patak's mild curry paste (coriander and cumin sauce base). I only have one recipe that uses the Madras Hot Curry Paste. Hoping someone on MeFi might be able to help out with recipes to use them up. I'm open to meat or vegetarian options, and have no allergies/diet restrictions. (Things that go well with rice appreciated.) [more inside]

Is it possible to train oneself into tolerating spices?

I like mild to moderately spicy dishes (crispy chilli beef, jalfrezi, chilli-tomato pasta sauce), but anything hotter numbs my mouth to the point where I can't actually taste anything, or worse, unable to eat it. Even if I go to Nandos, I don't want to try anything hotter than the mild piri-piri, because I'm worried I won't enjoy my meal due to the heat. Can I 'train' myself into getting used to spices? And does a higher tolerance enable the flavours, rather than the heat, to come through?

Foolproof veggie curry anyone?

I'm a decent cook in general and thanks to having had a few close Asian friends and a partner over the years to cook with/watch cook I am pretty decent at some Indian stuff ... bhaji's, paneer dishes, dhal etc... but I've always ballsed up vegetable curry. Why? I can't see where I go wrong.. I have the main spices, I use fresh ginger and garlic generally, I've tried grinding spices, different recipes, slaving for hours... it all comes out crap, or at best tasting just like my dhal. I've experimented with different amounts of spices and never get that tomatey, spicey kick so perfected by even the crappest take away. Even tried a course recently but the teacher was crazy, so I sacked it. Any tips? If it involves Aubergine all the better ;) Thanks in advance...

I want is to be able to start generating a variety of curries with the ingredients I have to hand, and have them be slightly more authentic than the old apple-sultana-coconut-yoghurt-and-contents-of-spice-rack 1970s British curry knockoff.
