    Curry, curry, curry - it's one of those pick me up dinners when you fancy something satisfying and full of flavour.

False: Freezing is a modern and safe way of preserving, keeping the flavour and the freshness of vegetables whilst retaining nutrients. Freezing is a natural preservation process that doesn’t need chemicals. Some scientific studies have shown that frozen food can contain more nutrients than the food you buy fresh.
