In life you just have to keep korma and curry on. This curry is a perfect addition to your winter warming nutrition and provides all the healing and nourishing properties of turmeric, coconut milk and ginger that I always rave on about. There is an Ancient Ayurvedic proverb that says “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need”. This curry ticks all the boxes for flavour and provides macronutrient ratios that can be used to assist with entering into a primarily fat burning system a.k.a Ketogenic diet. I will talk more about the Ketogenic way of life and how you can introduce ketosis into your life to benefit you. But for now just chow down on this creamy, authentic curry and beat the winter chills.
