This aromatic asparagus curry contains protein-rich chicken, which will keep you full for longer.
If you'd like a more rich, spicy flavor, add some finely chopped ginger to the dish. In Asian naturopathy, ginger has been successfully used for centuries to treat influenza, flu-like infections, and fevers. It's no wonder that Ginger is similar in structure and effect to acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin).
