We aren’t too sure. But a curry just isn’t a curry without the right mix of ingredients, perfectly spiced! Whilst certain spices are used to give a dish heat, we use a whole range of spices and herbs to add flavour and bring our food alive!
In our own lives, we strive to be healthy herbivores…80% of the time 😉 So we love that the spices and herbs we use in our plant packed dishes are full of the good stuff nature intended.
Slaying vampires since forever
Keeping the vampires away is that humble looking bulb, garlic. We live and BREATHE (don’t stand too close!) garlic. Not only punchy in taste but also a powerhouse in health. There are reports that garlic can help to reduce heart disease, lower cholesterol, without affecting beneficial HDL cholesterol and help to lower blood pressure. Garlic has also been shown to reduce pain and other symptoms in people with arthritis.
Our 3 favourite C’s
Namely cumin, coriander and cinnamon. All feature across several KK curries, each with their own nature gifted superpower!
Cumin is added to the base of many of our dishes. Not only do we love its bold flavouring, it is said to aid digestion and help with the old memory. It is a powerful anti-oxidant and lays claim to anti-asthmatic properties.
Coriander-a controversial herb that you either love or hate. Well, you can’t please everyone but we are sure pleased to feature it in a couple of our curries. Coriander claims fighting powers against high cholesterol, mouth ulcers, anaemia, menstrual symptoms, blood sugar disorders and can contribute towards good eye care. Not boastful at all!!
Sweet cinnamon. So soothing and comforting. The scent takes us back to warm Indian nights. The warmth of a cinnamon chai latte is a natural mood-boaster. This modest spice is said to help reduce blood pressure and may help sufferers of type 2 diabetes. It has anti-bacterial and even anti-viral properties. Studies have shown that this little sweetie may help improve motor function in those who suffer with related conditions.
We could go on and on about spices, herbs and the power of plants. We use sooo many! We delight in serving not only food that tastes great, but food we believe holds a whole lot of goodness!
