Curry is the result of a balanced combination of different herbs and dry spices, among those, the predominant ingredients are coriander, ginger, grains of pepper, garlic, cumin, hot pepper, mustard, nutmeg, and turmeric, the latter one is the basic ingredient that gives the curry the yellow colour.
Moreover, curry has a wide range of tonalities: from yellow to ochre, brown to green, and pinkish to intense red. The most interesting fact is that each region of Asia has its own style of curry, and their tastes can be different from one region to another, so that there are curries of soft flavour to curries of very hot flavour, which has known as the red curry.
Not only that curry provides us the intense flavour as the result of a combination of diverse spices, but also it gives us many benefits to our health. Among those benefits, it should be pointed out its properties of strengthening the immunologic system, of helping prevent the Alzheimer disease, and its effective power against the inflammation due to the properties that are provided by turmeric. The extracts of turmeric contain big amount of antioxidants that helps fighting against the oxidant stress and increases the level of vitamin C in our organism. The specialists reaffirm that a moderate consumption of curry contributes to reduce the level of cholesterol, when it has been taken along with a balanced and healthy diet. If someone suffers from gastritis or heartburn, it would be recommendable to start adding this ingredient in her/his daily meal more often, since one of the most ancient use of turmeric has been to calm down the acidity or gastritis due to its properties that protect the stomach, improve the digestion process, and reduce the gas and swelling.
We offer you many special dishes that are prepared with curry sauce, or you can simply add curry sauce to personalize your favourite dish. You can find it out more by visiting our online menu, please click here.]]>
Japanese people eat fresh food in small amount, which means that their meals are characterized by the quality of its ingredients rather than by the quantities of the food that contain on the plate.
Among the fresh ingredients that have been used in Japanese cuisine, the protein that has provided by raw food, such as salmon and tuna, stands out the most.
Other aspects that characterize the Japanese cuisine is that few dairy products have been consumed, in this sense, healthier and more beneficial alternatives are preferred, such as soya bean, millet, and tofu. This type of food is antioxidant, and rich in calcium and proteins, it also helps reduce the level of cholesterol and prevent against diabetes disease.
On the other hand, Japanese people are not very fond of bread or meat, on the contrary, they prefer rice, fish, vegetable, and fruit, freshly served in small amount. It is considered that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is usually characterized by having a variety of dishes, which can be including vegetable, rice, soup, or egg.
What can we learn from Japanese healthy eating habits in order to reach a long life? Probably, it would a great idea to start adding its healthy ingredients in our daily meal as well! We would like to make some suggestions that you might find them helpful:
In Thailand, the spoon is used to take the food to the mouth, and the fork is used to pile up the food. It is a common habit that the first and the second plate are served at the same time on the table, and are shared. Never eat “the bite of shame”.
When you visit Korea, do not forget that you should not start eating before people that are older than you. If someone is older than you who offer you a plate of food or a drink, you should take it with two hands, otherwise, it is considered as a lack of respect.
In China, it is very acceptable that you try every dish that has been offered to you, and leave the last bite of food on the plate, this means that you have been served with a generous meal.
If you visit Japan, apart from that you can arrive one hour late to a meal appointment, never leave the chopsticks vertically stick in the rice (you are offering rice to dead people!). Always leave the chopsticks in a horizontal position next to the bowl or plate (very useful in the most of Asian countries). Slurping the noodles is an act of how much you do like the noodles, and drinking the soup directly from the bowl.
In Afghanistan, if you drop the bread off the table, you should pick it up, kiss it and put it back at the disposal of the guests. It shows that you have respect for the food and the labour that has been employed to prepared it.
In the India, you have to eat everything, throwing food away is a “sin”. Only use the right hand to take the food to your mouth, and try find the balance between eating rapidly or slowly.
Not in vain, as you can read on in this post, it stands out for the number of minerals, vitamins, and water (roughly 94%) that it contains.
For example, due to lycopene, tomato has an intense red colour. Lycopene is an antioxidant substance that does not transform into vitamin A, and has a protective effect against a series of heart complications.
It contains a great number of vitamins (B, C and A), and it is ideal for weight loss diets because it has low calories and low fat. At the same time, it is also important to pointed out that its properties contain minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and more.]]>
