Great job guys. Glad to know you're putting the food knowledge to good use. My fave Indian cookbook is Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cooking - I remember Sherry haggling with the book vendor for us on the streets in Mumbai. I think its the best introduction to Indian regional cooking. And she has a good storytelling style.

Indian food uses spices and herbs that not just give it its distinctive taste and flavor but are also great for your health. Turmeric has been linked to cancer-prevention, ginger for coughs and colds and so on... Spices supply calcium, iron, vitamin B/C, carotene and other antioxidants.

So enjoy Indian food while the ingredients help your system!
