In fact, as far as we are concerned, you’d better have a pretty good excuse not to order a curry whenever the munchies strike.
Just in case you do need a little bit of persuasion to start browsing for a bhuna, National Curry Week starts today.
There is even a curry poem competition. Last year’s winner opened with the following lines:
‘Curry, you’re close to my heart!
Well, let’s hope you’re not too close to my heart
But you know what I mean, you play a special part.’
Have you ever read anything so beautiful?
Eat curry every night
We intend to celebrate the week by eating curry every night of the week. Although we do reserve the right to be unfaithful with a pizza should the mood strike us.
Apparently, Indian food is packed with health-promoting ingredients so we expect to be in tip top physical form after our curry marathon.
It is said that turmeric can help reduce inflammation of the joints while curcumin may help prevent Alzheimer’s.
Cinnamon has been found to reduce triglycerides, bad cholesterol, and sugar in the blood, thus helping those with high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.
We make no claims for the health-giving properties of curry but we do wish that someone would come up with a beer that helped you lose weight.
That way, there would be no need to nip down the gym. A couple of pints and a quick chicken Madras would be all a man needed to stay healthy into old age and beyond.
