Curry is the Food of Love……

Monday, February 13th, 2017


Are you looking for the ultimate romantic Valentine’s Day?  Well, look no further, I have the solutions you are looking for to sizzle up your day.

It is well known that the natural power of spices can leave you warm and fuzzy inside, so why not let the natural warmth of my spices be the perfect love potion for you this Valentine’s Day?

What could be more romantic than cooking a delicious, spicy meal with your loved one? Imagine creating the perfect dish, taking your time and perhaps enjoying a glass or two of your favourite drink?

So, why Curry I hear you ask?  Well, why not, when my spices have all the qualities you need to literally spice up your meals! You can adjust the heat to suit your tastes, add a little mango, coconut milk or cream to have a lighter flavour or, if you are both chilli freaks, then add the extra chilli for an increased zing in your evening.

Within the warmth of spices, lies a natural love potion, like no other, here’s my list of top spices to stimulate desire and enjoy a special night to remember with your loved one:

  1. Cinnamon heats up the body, according to expert opinion, which in turn boosts your love life.
  2. Cardamom is warming and pungent and can increase blood flow, which probably accounts for its special properties, lovely in Chai (Indian Tea).
  3. Ginger is known for its powerful properties, which increase circulation and body temperature and improve the pleasure zones.
  4. Garlic isn’t great for your breath (you must both indulge) but it is great for your heart, stamina and energy, resulting in a memorable evening.
  5. Chillies cause the brain to release endorphins, which are a feel-good chemical.
  6. Nutmeg natural properties that stimulate appetites, while its ability to sweeten breath increases attraction.
  7. Cloves Gives bounteous energy and ingesting them leaves you sweetly scented, creating a powerful attraction.

I bet you didn’t know that the humble Indian curry is the greatest aphrodisiac: it has all the above elements and abundant in my personal curry and garam masala blends.

Studies say that spicy curry increases heart and blood pressure to levels akin to one reached during arousal. So, the next time you make curry, add plenty of spice…

Happy Spicy Valentine’s Day!
