Great article! I recently received RawSpiceBar's Indian Spices- garam masala and tandoori spices for making chicken tikka masala and it was pretty spot on. It's tough to find freshly ground kashmiri chiles and other high quality hard to find spices. Look forward to receiving next month's spice blends from them and worth looking into if you're an adventurous cook.
