When a New Year approaches, many people start looking to detox and maybe shed a few pounds in January following all the excess food they have binged on over the festive period.
Whilst many people think that curries are super unhealthy, and should be strictly left out of a healthy diet, an award-winning Kent restaurateur is advising many people not leave curry off their diet in the New Year.
Spicy food are great to stimulate the metabolism, boost the immune system, and boost the spirts on cold, dark winter days. Being Asian, we also can’t escape the many spices in our life, and at least every meal we eat contains spice.
Popular curries contain spices and herbs such as, turmeric, cumin, allspice, cardamom, ginger, garlic and capsicum – spices with strong anti-bacterial properties.
Rob Khan, the owner of The Rajdani near Sevenoaks, which was recently named Best Indian Restaurant in the South East at the Asian Curry Awards, says that contrary to popular belief, Indian food is not fattening: “When do you ever see an overweight Indian waiter, or even a rotund Indian chef?” he asked, with the proviso,
“Some of the richer dishes laden with cream and butter should be avoided if you want to lose weight – and go easy on the lager.”
