Spice Up Your Life With Some Exciting Garnishes

Author : Peter Nicolson

Food these days can be a little bland and insipid. We are continuously eating something out of a bottle or a pre-prepared meal and the garnishes we use are mass produced and full of “e” numbers. The easiest way to spice up your life – literally is to try a few easy Indian recipes for chutneys that will add zest and a fresh flavor to just about anything. They take a few minutes to prepare and you can keep them in the fridge for days.

Not only are they easy to prepare but some of them contain a lot of goodness packed in a small, delicious bite. Take green chutney for example (or Hari chutney as it is referred to in India). This is a green chili blend of fresh coriander, mint, lemon juice and green chilis and some seasoning. There are many recipes out there to suit all tastes but in essence the basic ingredients remain the same. The mint and coriander and lemon juice give it a fantastic fresh and zesty flavor and the chillies are there to release your endorphins and give you natural pleasure.

Endorphins are what our cells produce naturally to relieve pain. They are a natural high and responsible for a whole host of things, for example, from increasing our sex drive to relieving the pain that arthritis sufferers feel. Our bodies react naturally to the “heat” of the chilis by releasing these polypeptides which attach themselves to the neuro-receptors in our brain and dull any pain. Moreover, chilis also contain a lot of essential vitamins in abundance, like Vitamin A and Vitamin C. It is generally acknowledged that chilis contain the highest concentration of Vitamin C per gram. So dig into that green chutney and enjoy it with sandwiches, samosas or other snacks and feel healthy along the way.

Another great idea is to make some tomato chutney to spice up your barbecue food or just to keep at home and enjoy with anything. Kids generally love tomato ketchup so tomato chutney presents a healthy alternative that is also full to the brim with taste and healthy to boot. Tomato chutney recipes vary a great deal so find one that suits your taste buds, whether you like it extra spicy or a sweet and spicy taste, there is always one to suit all palates. Making one with a smoky hint for your barbecues always works wonders and you may find that huge bowl you made finishing quicker than you imagined.

Tomatoes, in their cooked form, also contain a myriad of good vitamins and minerals and tomato chutney can be stored in a fridge for weeks without going off. The spices that you add can make a real difference and a hint of coriander powder and some chili can liven up that chutney. Both these chutneys offer a far fresher alternative and a healthier option to what we can find in the stores and give any meal that personal touch.
