Reader Glen just sent us a link to this story and recipe by English chef and nutritionist Gurpareet Bains. Bains has made a rather outrageous yet intriguing claim: He says that he has invented the "world's healthiest meal."

Straining believability even further, this "healthiest meal" is curry! Now, we know that curry usually isn't so healthy, if you take healthy to mean low-fat and low-calorie. Our curry recipe starts out with a rather astonishing amount of oil!

But Bains has created a fast, inexpensive chicken curry that also packs in a lot of popular antioxidant foods, like blueberries and Goji berries. He says that this combination of "superfoods" is a great way build up resistance to cancer and Alzheimers, and he also says that a single plate of this curry and pilau contains as many health-boosting antioxidants as 49 bowls of spinach, 23 bunches of grapes or 9 helpings of broccoli. Wow!

What do you think about this dish? We think it's a bit of a stunt, but we also really like the progression towards lightened-up curries that still showcase spice and flavor.
