Why Should You Eat Curry?

All the spices and herbs utilized in my new cookbook India’s Unsurpassed Cuisine have enormous health benefits. For example the yellow colored curcumin or turmeric powder, used in my curry recipes (see Chapters 4 – 15) is arguably the most potent anti-cancer nutrient in existence. “There is definitely no shortage of scientific evidence these days to show that curcumin, the believed to be primary active ingredient in the spice turmeric hold incredible therapeutic value, and just might be the most advisable medicinal spice of our day.

Curry Whole Spices

I teach my grandkids (ages 20-10 years) how to cook their favorite curry recipes to create understanding and awareness that:

  • The spices utilized in Indian cuisine are healthy because they are major sources of vitamins and minerals needed to preserve human life
  • The magic of curry is in the blending and sautéing of spices (masala)
  • Legume and bean dishes are always seasoned with asafoetida, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, garlic, ginger, onion, and turmeric to reduce gas and make food light to digest
  • Vegetables always need coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, onion, and turmeric
  • Certain spices such as bay leaf, black pepper, cardamom, chili pepper, cinnamon, clove, coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, nutmeg, onion, and turmeric work well together for meat and vegetable curries. Cardamon, cinnamon, and nutmeg are natural astringent substances that help to tighten and firm tissues, organs, and skin and rejuvenate the body. Black pepper is a heating agent or ‘fire’ that increases internal heat and opens up congested sinuses and aids digestion
  • Simple utensils and tools are used to prepare your favorite Chicken Curry, Basmati Rice, Sweet Mint Chutney, Grilled Salmon with Herbs, Butter Chicken, and Curried Chickpeas with Poori Bread
  • Most importantly, Indian cuisine is an inexpensive way to stay healthy

We are what we eat. My ‘gift of good health’ came from a spiritual reawakening through Indian food because it promotes creativity, life, vitality, strength, health, laughter, joy, and cheerfulness.
