5 Common Spices Used in Indian Food and Their Health Benefits

Food & Beverages
Indian cuisine is one of the most loved cuisines around the world. Thanks to globalization, one does not have to travel to another country to taste its local cuisine. Indian cuisine is famous for its rich flavors and the use of herbs and spices. However, not a lot of people know the health benefits of some of the spices used in the food. To give you a brief insight into the world of spices, here is a list of five spices that are commonly used in Indian food and their health benefits.


Turmeric is commonly used in every Indian household to give the food a yellowish hue. This spice is famous for its strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been in use across South East Asian countries for centuries. Turmeric is also popular as a skin care product; in the Hindu tradition, women who are about to get married are covered with turmeric paste to give them a glowing skin. It is also commonly used to heal cuts and wounds.

Red Chili

Popularly used as a taste enhancer, red chili is used in many dishes in India. There are many varieties of chilies available throughout the world, but the chilies that are most used in India are the red chilies. They are usually dried out in the sun and either crushed into flakes or grounded into powder, or left whole. Many of you may not know but chilies can actually help you lose weight as they increase your metabolism. Red chili also fights inflammation and boosts the body’s immune system.

Cumin Seeds

Cumin seeds are used in most Indian dishes for the aroma and flavor it gives out. The seeds are usually fried in oil or ghee to bring out the aroma. Otherwise, the raw seeds are also grounded or roasted before being grounded. Cumin seeds are a very good source of iron and manganese, and also help in flushing out toxins from your system. Moreover, water boiled with cumin seeds can help curb dysentery. All in all, they make your immune system stronger, helping you live a healthier life.

Mustard Seeds

The most typically used types of mustard seeds in Indian dishes are the black mustard seeds as they have the strongest flavor. These seeds are usually used for seasoning by adding them in hot oil to bring out its flavor. The seeds can also be grounded to form a paste and used in pickles. Mustard seeds are a great source of not only selenium and omega-3 fatty acids, but also phosphorous, magnesium, and dietary fiber. It is also known that Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, also used mustard seeds medicinally.

Coriander Powder

Another one of the most commonly used spices in India is the coriander powder. It is locally known as “dhaniya powder” and is popular for the aromatic flavor it gives to the dish. Coriander powder has the ability to heal wounds because of its anti-bacterial property. Not only that, it can also help you in coping with ailments such as cold, allergies, and digestive problems. If all these health benefits are not enough, coriander powder also helps in lowering cholesterol level.

There are many other spices that are used in Indian cuisines and the wonders of the spices used cannot be denied, both for the flavors and the health benefits.
