Can anyone advise on resource that would list verbs most commonly associated with particular words/nouns? I found a website for descriptive words, but haven’t been successful with verbs.
What you're actually asking for here is something that shows common collocations. Most online corpora that offer searches provide some mechanism for determining these collocates.
One such resource which is commonly used is the Corpus of Contemporary American English, normally abbreviated COCA for short. This is a resource that requires some short learning time to get the most from it, but it’s very good for this purpose and many others.
See this answer for other corpus suggestions.
One very particular method is a corpus search. Google Books, as part of its Ngrams search, allows you to search with (very limited) wildcards.
For example, to see the most common words that follow 'curry', search there for,
You'll get the history for 'curry powder', 'curry favor', 'curry and', 'curry favour', etc. Notice that it returns any collocation, a few like 'curry and' are probably not what you are thinking of.
There's also a way to restrict the wildcard to parts of speech:
See the Ngrams help page on how to use this. It's not as general as you might hope, but can certainly get you something.
