Earlier this year I went through a period of where I was creating authentic Thai curries from scratch every Saturday. I learned a lot about what makes Thai cuisine Thai and so I have take some inspiration from such knowledge and used it in this paleo version of a lovely light chili curry. When I had a blocked nose I was advised to eat spicy food because Capsaicin, the compound found in chilies that gives them their heat, helps release blocked mucus so if you are suffering from the cold, give this recipe a go.
Cumin is a spice made from the seeds of the cuminum cymium plant and has a earthy, nutty and warm taste. Cumin aids with digestion as it increases the activity of digestive enzymes and release of bile from the liver (which digests fats). It is also naturally rich in iron and antioxidants.
Serve this curry up with a fresh bowl of rice, green vegetables and top with roasted coconut flakes and holy basil for a true authentic taste. I food prepped this one for four days and was sad when I had the last potion, it was that good! Alternatively, it makes a great family dinner.
