 Immune-Boosting Curry Cooked Up by Indian-Origin Chef
An Indian origin chef who hosts a cooking program on the BBC channel revealed that she has created an “immune-boosting” curry that is made up of garlic, chillies and cinnamon, all of which can help fight infections.
Anjum Anand, who hosts the Indian Cooking Made Easy program on BBC2, said that the dish also contains fenugreek leaves and pomegranate seeds, both of which are known to provide a number of health benefits.

Speaking to The Sun, she said that the dish is rich in vitamin C and other minerals that will provide a boost to the immune system. “Spices in food are like medicine in Indian families and I wanted to make a simple, immune-boosting dish. I read research showing that fenugreek leaves were rich in Vitamin C. They are also very tasty so I have combined them with superfoods like pomegranate seeds”, he said.
