Spice Rice And All Things Nice

18th June 2015

Abdul's Indian on Ecclesall Road Sheffield has launched a brand new range of healthy curries for the city.

The diner is leading the way in supporting those that are health conscious by introducing a Healthy Options Menu for Sheffield curry lovers. The restaurant aims to give customers an easy and even more appealing way to control the amount of salt, sugar and fats they eat, without compromising on flavour. To enhance the range's credibility the company have worked closely with and have been endorsed by Charity Heart Research UK. The charity that has been helping hearts since 1967 lead by heart surgeon, Mr David Watson MBE. Heart disease remains the UK's biggest killer with nearly 80,000 people dying each year from the illness and 2.3 million living with a heart condition. The new range includes curries with a significantly lower amount of oil and cream. Owner, Abdul Ghafoor created the menu in a bid to change perceptions of fast food as an unhealthy option for family mealtimes. Abdul said; "I don't want people to think that just because they're healthy, they'll lack flavour. We can guarantee that the dishes will maintain the taste and quality that you expect from Abdul's." Authentic Indian cuisine ranks amongst the healthiest in the world. Late last year, a remarkable study was published by the United States National Institute of Health "Effects of turmeric on Alzheimer's disease with behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia." Researchers described patients with Alzheimer's disease whose symptoms were "improved remarkably" as a result of consuming turmeric. Curcumin, which gives the curry spice turmeric its bright yellow colour, could also be helpful in treating painful arthritis, according to researchers at the University of Nottingham in the U.K. and Ludwig-Maxmillians University in Munich, Germany. Turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional Indian, or ayurvedic, medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent and remedy for symptoms related to irritable bowel syndrome and other disorders. Based on its potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, researchers in several countries are now investigating curcumin for use in a variety of diseases, including some types of cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. Friday night has fast become curry night across the UK. There couldn't be a better time to launch a healthy curry range! The menu is now also available across all three Abdul's diners in Sheffield, Wakefield and Pontefract.
