Blackburn with Darwen's pumping out curry challenge
12:07pm Friday 22nd June 2012 in Blackburn
BLACKBURN with Darwen Council’s Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP) group has linked up with local heart failure charity, Pumping Marvellous.
Representatives of the group and the charity will be outside Blackburn Town Hall tomorrow lunch time, demonstrating their Curry Pot Challenge, where members of the public can taste traditional South Asian food, made without ghee, salt and full fat yoghurt.
Mansoor Akhtar of HCP said: “Ninety per cent of ingredients in a curry are healthy.
“But by cooking it the way we do, it becomes unhealthy.
“Hopefully we can demonstrate in this Curry Pot Challenge, that you can still get a great tasting dish, without it being bad for you.”
Children from Wensley Fold Primary School, St Silas Primary, and Sacred Heart Primary, have designed Olympic-themed ‘healthy heart’ T-shirts.
And the children will be wearing them at the stall tomorrow.
