Heart friendly,waist friendly – delicious!
We all know that obesity is now a major problem in the UK.Currently, it is a major focus of research in Warwick MedicalSchool.In particular, we have studied obesity – and obesity relateddiseases such as diabetes, heart attacks and strokes – in theSouth Asian population. There has been a dramatic increasein the prevalence of diabetes in people of South Asian originand they are four to five times more likely to develop Type 2diabetes than Europeans. A high-fat diet is thought to be oneof the major contributors to increasing obesity and obesity-related diseases among South Asians.If all of us take a few simple steps to reduce portion sizes,eat a little less salt, sugar and fat (oil) and make a point of being a bit more physically active, we will go a long way tocontaining this obesity epidemic. What we all have to donow is to change our lifestyles so that we incorporate thesehealthy habits as part of our daily routine.The University of Warwick has teamed up with the award-winning Lasan Restaurant in Birmingham to create adelicious range of innovative, contemporary and healthySouth Asian recipes. You can cook using these tried andtested recipes or you can, of course, experiment and createnew versions for yourself – so long as you remember to useless salt, healthy oils and also less sugar. I am sure you willenjoy them!

Enjoy your favourite currywithout guilt
For those who have been brought up with spice as a partof their daily lives, the flavour of traditional Indian foodis something that can’t be replaced by any other cuisine.Nothing else produces the level of satisfaction that a goodhome cooked curry can provide! So we need to look at howwe can still enjoy good Indian food without guilt.Curries have a tendency to be high in unhealthy saturatedfats due to the traditional use of ghee and vegetable oils.The use of modern non-stick cookware and alternative oilsis a great way to reduce the levels of unhealthy fats requiredin the cooking process. The availability of healthier oilsmakes it possible to retain authentic cooking practices andflavour. Olive oil is great with fish and vegetables – tryto go for the virgin option as the lesser grades tend to bemixed with other vegetable oil. I also use rapeseed oil in mycooking; I insist on cold-pressed oil as it has a great flavourand is very nutritional – it is great with chicken and redmeats and has a high smoking temperature.With these recipes there’s no need to feel guilty whenenjoying your favourite curry! These recipes are healthierwithout requiring specialist equipment or ingredientsand without compromising on flavour. Everything used isreadily available in your local supermarket.
Enjoy!
