The spice turmeric has been given a lot of press recently and some studies show that it can reduce inflammation, fight infection and some cancers, and help with digestive problems. Turmeric is a main ingredient in most Western curry powders.
And apparently, according to some nutritionists, you should eat it along with black pepper to gain the most benefits.
I am thrilled to know that it is good for me, cause I just plain old LOVE it... Love the taste, love the smell, and the heat from eating it!
Here are 5 of my favorite curry recipes… I should tell you that I no longer use canola oil in my cooking, so if you happen to see that in any of my recipes, please note that I am now using either coconut oil or olive oil in its place.
I make this a lot… and now just use a couple of heaping spoonfuls of curry powder instead of the brand name paste. It’s really just as good!
There are several other curry recipes on the blog… just seach CURRY and you will find them.
Recently I asked some other foodies to share their favorite recipes that have turmeric in the ingredients, too, and here is a few that I got in response. Be sure to check them out… I will be trying some of them for sure!
