Tasty curry that protects and defends
Huh? Curries that can protect and defend?
Yes, you read this right!
Curries contribute to your body's defence against bacteria and protects you from diseases. The spices such as cumin, cardamom, tumeric and peppers in curries are known to get rid of bacteria in meats by 80%.
That aside, the many ingredients used to create the curry paste are useful for other things... including self-defence.
We tend to buy curries in a jar or from a packet. My friend swears by his A1 curry paste.

But curry pastes just don't have that pow that Indian curries have. Neither does it have that defensive or protective aspects that they have. Even if you splash and slather it onto any rabid attacker, it will not help. But, this is not the case when you use raw ingredients. More about that later.
Now, back to curries. The best curry will naturally come from India, the place of its origin. It was incredible - the fragrance from the spices, the lingering flavours in the mouth and the thickness of the curry. And I got to know some Indian folks, who told me the secrets behind making a great curry paste.
Buying commercial curry powders or masalas can be hit or miss as they often contain stale spices and other nasties like anti-caking agents.
If you want to experience real taste with freshly-ground, dry-roasted spice/curry blends (with absolutely no additives), I'd recommend you go towww.spicefusion.com.au - and check out their recipes too!
