An Indian-origin chef has made an immune-boosting curry using humble ingredients like garlic, cinnamon and chillies which she claims can ward off illness.
Anjum Anand, 41 who presented BBC2's Indian Cooking Made Easy has said that a dish made with vitamin C-packed ingredients like pomegranate seeds and fenugreek leaves has healing powers and can fight infection, The Sun reported.
"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," Anand said.
"They are also very tasty so I have combined them with superfoods like pomegranate seeds," she was quoted as saying by the paper.
British nutritionists have backed her claims and have urged people to make the spicy dish at home.
"This curry is packed with important vitamins and minerals which can support the immune system and can also help stave off coughs and colds," nutritionist Maria Bez, based at the private practice Nourish, said.
