Spice help!

[001] FYI: I'll be on a mini 3 week hiatus from 18th till the 12th of July, 'cause of family vacation. Since its not really even a month I doubt it'll be that noticeable :)

[002] Daily posting at mirth4merith has begun so do check out the community. The first day also has fab Heero & Duo art too!

[003]who_la_hoop wrote a fantastic Sanzo/Goku fic which y'all can check out over here <3

[004] My parents are willing to bring me spices as long as I send them a list (nothing huge, maybe half a cup of each?) but the issue is I'm not sure what to include.

Current stuff I have in the kitchen: sea salt, pepper, cumin, corriander, turmeric (curry powder), crushed cayenne peppers, chilli powder, onion powder, garlic powder, veg seasoning, chicken boullion

On the desi/indian side, my sister pointed out the following: black mustard seeds (for texture/crunch), garam masala (in pieces, not ground), dal makhani, chole masala, keema curry mix, veg curry mix, meat masala and crushed kashmiri chillies

I have limited exposure to western and far east asian spices so I'm not sure what to focus on, apart from dill, oregano, thyme, rosemary, paprika, etc.

So I have to ask: what spices do y'all tend to use often/find invaluable in the kitchen?
