If there is one thing Indian cuisine is known for, it is that the recipes are wildly liberal when it comes to the use of spices. In fact, in order for a kitchen to have a respectable Indian spice cabin, it must have at least the 20 essential spices, including turmeric, coriander, saffron, red dry chili, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and kala namak or rock salt. These spices are the key to recreating the rich culinary wonderland of Indian cuisine. However, did you know that these spices also contribute numerous health benefits?
For example, turmeric is the spice that lends common Indian dishes and Indian vegetarian recipes that bright yellow color, which is why it is called the ‘Indians saffron.’ But aside from providing flavor to food, it also bears anti-inflammatory properties that are capable of treating a wide range of discomforts, from menstrual pains to toothaches. It also carries a powerful antioxidant called curcumin that can kill cancer cells in vitro and shrink tumors in animals.
Another spice which is commonly used in Indian dishes and Indian vegetarian recipes is coriander. Like turmeric, coriander also has anti-inflammatory properties. Aside from that, it promotes better digestion and helps reduce the oxidative stress suffered by patients with diabetes. In fact, leading health experts include coriander in their dietary plan for diabetes patients.
