Curry is usually connected with Indian foods. However, curry is a very popular ingredient in many dishes in all other countries. People love the taste and combination of ingredients. There are very many different curry recipes, but most of them have certain ingredients that carry a lot of health benefits. Let’s look at these ingredients and their benefits.
Turmeric – This is the herb that gives curry its yellow color. You will find turmeric in almost any curry powders and if you make it from scratch you will also use it. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help with arthritis. It also helps to fight Alzheimer’s disease and keep the liver clean.
Coconut milk – This is milk from a coconut as the name suggests. Coconut milk will also be included in all curry powders and recipes. The health benefits of this ingredient include helping with digestion and boosting the immune system.
Chilies – The type and amount used in curry differs from cook to cook, but the health benefits remain. Chilies have antioxidants and also helps with sleep patterns and can act as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Ginger – Ginger has a very specific taste that makes food taste great. In curry powders, it goes hand-in-hand with garlic which holds its own numerous health benefits. Ginger is good for relieving pain and can help prevent nausea and motion sickness. Garlic is a cancer-fighting agent and helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
The health benefits of curry will be lost if it is used in foods with too much fat or carbohydrates. It then becomes unhealthy despite all these wonderful health benefits. Use curry with foods that will keep your meal healthy.
