Introduction to Indian Food

The Indian diet is known for its use of a variety of spices and rice, including its variety of flavours and colours which are what makes the Indian cuisine so unique. Being generally low in fat, high in vegetables, fruit and lean meat, an Indian diet has many health benefits.

There are specific components of an Indian diet which have a range of health benefits.

Chickpeas, which are often used in vegetarian curries, are a great source of fibre, zinc, folate and protein, which makes them a healthy factor in a vegetarian Indian diet. 

Sag Aloo (Spinach) and Gobhi Aloo (Cauliflower and Potatoes) are just a few healthy choices as they do not use cream or cheese.

The most common traditional use of cumin is for indigestion.  Cumin also increases the release of bile from the liver. Bile helps digest fats and certain nutrients in your gut
