Healthy Eating Workshop: Curry Cooking Class

In today’s workshop, the students had a chance to taste one of Anj’s Curries, which people have said in the past, are probably the best curries in Noosa 🙂 🙂 🙂

In today’s class we made a Massaman Curry.

What’s so good about it:
Studies have shown that chilli consumption can help to control and reduce insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (high insulin levels) often associated with, Type 2 diabetes. Both chilli, garlic and the spice cardamom used in the curry paste can stimulate digestion and assist with gastrointestinal disorders. Black pepper contains an active ingredient called piperline that is known to enhance digestion and work as an anti-inflammatory. Pumpkin contains carotenoid antioxidants that can help support a healthy immune system.

As we assumed, they students loved the curry, and you could tell this not just by their moans and groans while they were eating, but also because there were no left overs!
