National Curry Week is Coming!

It is that time of year again when we can look forward to National Curry Week in the UK.  This year it falls between 9th and 15th October and celebrates its 20th anniversary.

National Curry Week has the obvious object of promoting the great variety and diversity of curry dishes available throughout the country.  People are encouraged to visit their local curry houses or make their own versions of the dish at home.

At the same time, the aim is to raise funds for various charities concerned primarily with battling hunger, poverty and malnutrition.  People are encouraged to join in, engaging with fun challenges and events, and making donations.

Combat Bowel Cancer with Hot Curries!

The Journal of Clinical Investigation has published a study which suggests that a chemical compound found in spicy curries can help prevent the risk of developing bowel cancer.

Capsaicin is what gives chilli peppers their heat.  In an experiment it was given to mice by scientists.  It triggered a pain receptor in cells in the lining of the intestines which resulted in a reaction reducing the likelihood of developing colorectal tumours.  In fact it was found to extend the life of the subject mice by up to 30%.

The Magnificent Seven – Curry Facts & Myths!

The internet is a wonderful tool, as we all know.  Here are seven interesting facts and myths about curry that I have come across in my googling.

1.    The earliest known curry is believed to have been made in Mesopotamia in around 1700BC.

2.    The word ‘curry’ is thought to have derived from the Tamil word ‘kari’ meaning spiced sauce.

3.    Korma is probably the most misunderstood curry in the world.  The word means slow cooked or braised rather than the British understanding of it as a mild curry.  Indeed, it can be very mild or fierily hot, depending on the ingredients used.

School Kids Grow Their Own Curry!

I am pleased to announce that for the second year the British Curry Club are helping primary school students to grow their own curry ingredients.

Selected schools have already received packets of seeds supplied by Sutton Seeds.  The hope is that the chosen schools will form gardening clubs and post news of their crops on their respective websites or social media pages.
