Did you know that masala means “mixed spice” – which is pretty much most indian cooking whether it be sweet or spicy! Us indians, specially us gujus ( Gujarati – an area of indian) love our spices from turmeric to cinnamon! I can almost guarantee that an indian household will have upto 15+ spices in the house! I’m a very fusion cooker – both indian and western I have a drawer full of spices both indian and western spices/herbs – but they all have their uses.IMG_5674

If you prefer the your curry mild, then add a few table spoons of double cream and only 1/2 tsp of chilli powder and this will make this into a mild curry. However studies show that if you eat spicer food then you are likely to burn more calories too, as the chilli speeds in the inner metabolism by increasing the base body temperature slightly.IMG_5675
