They are called tiffin boxes, or tiffin carriers.You should be able to find them at any Indian or Pakistani general market or food market, or by mail order.

I don't have any specific recipes for your different foods but if you are doing any sort of curry then make the paste from scratch, not from a jar. I found these Jamie Oliver recipes and use them all the time. The end result is SO much better than what I used to make the lazy way, and the kitchen smells amazing too :D
