Curries – The Ultimate Comfort Food
Imagine divine smells wafting over the fence, making your envious neighbours wonder what gourmet creations you are whipping up. Try going for a walk around dinner time with all sorts of yummy smells coming out front doors, by the time you get home, you’re completely ravenous.
There is no better aroma than foods made with exotic spices, whether it be hearty meats or vegies, enticing you to dig in. A curry certainly delivers all that and lots more. No they don’t have to be spicy, but definitely always jam packed with incredible flavour.
Curries are a meal that can be enjoyed all year round but their popularity certainly peaks in the colder months. Not sure whether it’s their warming abilities, hovering over the top of a steaming bowl of curry and rice, or their ability to ward off the dreaded flu by keeping our immune system strong. Did you know that curries are filled with all sorts of vitamins and minerals, with health benefits ranging from reducing inflammation, aiding digestion and assisting with a healthy heart and strong bones? Not only do they work wonders filling hungry tummies, but they are extremely good for you.
Curries are definitely a favourite for us, whether it’s more classic Indian style ones, or South East Asian ones. Curries can be so versatile, using your favourite red or white meat, fresh Australian seafood, or just one big vegie hit, something for everyone’s tastes.
