What is curry?
The word "curry" carries a different meaning than "spice" to people outside of the Western world. The British created curry powder during their colonial rule of India from ingredients such as turmeric, nutmeg, cumin, red pepper, mustard, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves. In the Indian culture, "curry" is used simply to define an entree that is "prepared with a sauce".
I've heard that Indian food has various health properties, is this true?
According to USA Today, doctors trained in Ayurvedic medicine (a traditional medical system in India) have turned to turmeric to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. Here in the United States, many people who have been diagnosed with arthritis take over-the-counter supplements that contain curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.
While more research needs to be completed, various clinical studies have shown curcumin supplements to have positive effects on reversing and eliminating ailments.
