What Makes Chicken Curry An Absolutely A Healthy Dish?

You might not believe it, but Chicken curry can be a good addition in your strict diet plan. Being health-conscious doesn’t mean you need to forget about eating delicious food and simply concentrate on raw vegetables and other fibrous meals.

Yes, it is true that you need to be disciplined with what you eat. Otherwise, you will uncontrollably grow bigger and heavier. Thus, you will contract all deadly diseases that go along with being obese. Yet, eating meat is not a mortal sin especially if you are eating chicken curry.

The Benefits Of Eating Chicken

Obviously, chicken curry is rich in protein because of the chicken meat. Protein is needed to build muscle tissues, and is essential for growth. Chicken contains less fat especially the breast part, thus it is unthreatening to the cardiovascular health.

Aside from protein, chicken contains niacin and vitamin B6. Niacin is good in controlling any abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in the body, while vitamin B6 is a good source of energy.

Aside from those who are maintaining their weight or into a weight loss program, there are some specific individuals that need to incorporate chicken curry in their dietary plan. Those people who suffer from diabetes, skin cancer, and other inflammatory problems in the body can greatly benefit from eating chicken curry. Here are the health facts:

  • The curry mixture is a combination of herbs and spices like cayenne, but it largely has the component of turmeric that contains Curcumin in it.
  • This Curcumin is known to have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is good in treating arthritis and cleansing the colon.
  • In addition, Curcumin is also known to treat skin cancer because it causes the Melanoma cells to destroy itself.
  • The cayenne in the chicken curry gives that hot and spicy burning sensation. The cayenne is notably good as an analgesic, yet it is also identified to lessen the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.

The Possible Benefits Of Chicken Curry

Though it has not been tested in humans, but laboratory research was conducted using lab mice that were fed with chicken curry. These mice had breast cancer, and the result showed that the curry had stopped the spreading of the cancer cells in the body of these mice because the curry has the ability to inhibit oxidative damage.

Another possible benefit of eating chicken curry is that it reduces the production of beta-amyloid which is the cause of having Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, it has a bigger chance of arresting Alzheimer’s disease. As of today, there is an ongoing study on how it can prevent the development of Alzheimer because previous studies lacked the epidemiologic evidence.

Chicken Curry Comes From All Over Asia

When you get the chance to tour around Asia, chicken curry is mostly served in many restaurants. In fact, this tasty spicy dish comes in many variants with different cookery style. But you can not miss its distinct aroma and that addictive hot and spicy burning sensation. From Vietnamese to Indian cuisine, chicken curry can be found in the menu. So which country brought it into its existence first?

Somewhere In Asia

Many would testify that curry originally came from India. But some would say that it came from Northern America, but others would claim that it was from South America specifically, Trinidad and Tobago.

Concerning the Indian origin, before it was made into a delicious chicken curry, the ingredients of this mixture were used as Ayurverdic medicine, a traditional form of medicine by Hindu. The Ayurverdic medicine is akin to alternative medicine that uses herbs and other spices.

The word curry is simply the English term of the process of seasoning the meat with different spices. In India, it was termed as Garam Masala. The powder in Tamil is called sambar, but the word curry has its counterpart in Tamil which is termed as kari, that means to sauce.

From those part of Asia (India and Sri Lanka), the chicken curry was spread all over Europe.

The Usual Concoction

The curry in the chicken curry dish is a mixture of herbs and spices. The basic spice is the turmeric. Other herbs and spices that are combined with the turmeric are the cayenne, coriander, fenugreek, and pepper. The mixture depends on the people.

What is usually available in the market is the curry powder. This powder is what is commonly in cooking chicken curry. But a curry paste is also made available in some countries.

The Variants of The Dish

The chicken curry comes in different cooking style. The curry powder itself has been added with other spices like clove, ginger, nutmeg, caraway, fennel seeds, mustard seeds, cardamom (black and green), and many more. Others would add cinnamon in the concoction.

Instead of chicken, others would use other meat like duck meat, pork, goat meat, and even Tofu. Aside from the combination of the meat and the sauce, some would include vegetables like eggplant, green beans, cauliflower, and others. Regardless with what is added in the curry dish, people learn to love this dish and would always crave for more.

Life’s Daily Devotion

Sharing my devotion today:

The people complained about their problemsi instead of praying. Some problems can be solved by careful thought or by rearranging our priorities. Some can be solved by discussion and good counsel. But some problems can be solved only by prayer. We should make a determined effort to pray when we feel like complaining because complaining only raises our level of stress. Prayer quiets our thoughts and emotions, and prepares us to listen.

Adversity… It is a big word. In fact, nobody wants it. But it happens… Even the richest person in this planet has troubles and somehow meets it every now and then. Perhaps the only difference between rich and poor people is that rich people have the money to either buy the solution or use their money to escape the issues at hand, whereas poor people have either slim exit doors or none at all.
