Hello, I have a problem with an ulcer at the moment and have been told to not eat "spicy" food. I am wondering if you can suggest a nice tasty curry without too much spice, as it is now six weeks since I have had any spicy food. I can only open my spice cupboard and have a good smell these days. Any help would be very welcome, thanks.

I am sorry to hear about your troubles :(!
Only spices that are hot and troublesome are the 'hot' spices, like chillies, black pepper and garam masala, and perhaps clove to a certain extent. You can make a perfectly good curry without them.
Use only cinnamon, bay leaf and cardamoms for GM. For 'tempering', use cumin/mustard seeds/fenugreek seeds, these are is still okay.
Turmeric is actually a healing spice, so good for you.
Coriander is a cool spice.
You should be fine. Hope your treatment succeeds and your ulcer heals quickly.

Thanks for that Mamta, I think I probably knew that so will try a Chicken dish with cumin, coriander, turmeric and cardamon with Yoghurt and see how it goes. Any other suggestions will be welcome.

Try this one, it is easy and gives pretty good results. Omit the spices mentioned above;
I often make extra marinade in one go and freeze portions in small jars. You can make tandoori meat/poultry or fish with it or a curry, whatever you like. I discovered this recipe ne day when I was feeling lazy and had some marinade waiting to be used.
For extra flavour, you can always add some ground green cardamoms.
In fact, in everyday cooking, I hardly ever cook anything hot. Chillies just hide the flavour of all other lovely spices.
Spicy does not equal Hot!

I make a very easy and tasty Methi Chicken. Its pretty much chicken browned, add thickened cream and a good handful of methi leaves! Cook until chicken is tender and thats it.

Methi chicken sounds lovely :)
