Indian Curry With Sweet Potatoes, Cauliflower and Bok Choy

Published on May 27, 2014

When we think of Indian cuisine we think of a lot of variety, colorful spices and condiments like jams, dips, raitas, sauces, chutneys and pickles. There is no end to the creativity and combinations. Because it’s all about the flavorful sauces, Indian cooking is great for making vegetarian recipes. Whether there’s meat in it or not, you won’t notice. Bok choy looks like celery but it’s a member of the cabbage family. It’s packed with vitamins A and C which helps the body resist infections and fight inflammatory free radicals. Bok choy is also a good source of vitamin K which makes your bones stronger delaying osteoporosis and may also help alzheimer’s patients by limiting neuronal damage to their brains.
