hey snigdha, This recipe is spicy as well as healthy. Is spicy food benefacial for health?

Hi Ganesh Very spicy food is certainly not healthy as it can irritate ones stomach & bowels. But spice & spicy food (am talking of medium or reasonable spicy food) can help clear ones sinuses, increase blood circulation (especially good in winter since our metabolism works slower compared to summers). Also a research led by Dr. Timothy Bates at Nottingham University has led to the discovery that 'capsaicin' helps fight cancer/tumour cells. Capsaicin is the active component of chillies. Well..if spice can help fight cancer, isn't that beneficial? Am sure you will agree that it is!!!

By spicey do you mean hot as in capsicum, or do you mean multiple spices? This term is confusing as it can mean hot or spices. Too much garlic can make a dish hot, even ginger can be hot. Hot or spicey?

By hot ..i mean, hot as in pepper, ginger & garlic & spicy as in garam masala powder. hence the name hot n spicy.

Cooking can be boring for men. But if you are in a foreign country and missing the Home made food, you will just do anything to grab some food with Indian touch. On the Contrary, I decided to make it myself and your recipe just added colours to the same. I cooked for the first time in my life and cant tell how divine it turned out to be. The recipe is a hit and I decided to cook it every weekend. :) With your permission I would like to experiment with it by adding some marinated boneless chicken to it. I hope it will turn out to be as exciting. Thanks again!! :)

Hi Abhishek, did you try the recipe with chicken? You are a chef already! The basic gravy can be used for all kinds of meat and veggies. Try cottage cheese (Paneer) next.
