Low fat yummy curry

I love this curry, so many of us including me just buy a jar of processed sauces that are high in sugar, salt and fat and don’t taste very good.

I then made this curry and since then I have made my own sauces as I can then decide what goes into it.

So I discovered the s recipe in Gordon Ramsey’s book but I have used the same spices but have swapped a few things out and used healthier alternatives.

So your curry can be veggie or not. I do like having this with chicken but also chickpeas.

For the chickpeas just buy the dried ones soak over night then boil for a hour this means they still have a bit of crunch and is more economical than the tins.

Chicken curry

Dice the chicken and put in a bowl

Add a dash of sea salt

1/2 tsp chilli 🌢 powder mild

1 tsp ground coriander

4 garlic cloves (use a garlic press) or 2 tsp garlic powder

4cm of ginger grated finely or 2 tsp ground ginger

2 tbsp lemon πŸ‹ juice ( I freeze the lemon then blitz in a blender and use the juice from this)

100ml greek natural yogurt

Add a red chilli diced if you want more heat

Marinate overnight in the fridge

In a saucepan add a tbsp of olive oil

Then dice a red onion and 2 garlic cloves in the pan

Add 1 tsp of coriander and chilli 🌢 powder

1 1/2 tsp Garam masala

1 1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cumin

75ml natural Greek yogurt I like to use one with coconut in it

Add 150ml tomato πŸ… paste

If you like it sweet you can also add in some mango juice

You can also add other veg I added mushrooms I love them in curry dishes you can add peppers, tomatoes etc

Cook for about 20 mins

Serve with rice I used long grain and basmati rice healthier low GI measure out a cup of rice then add 2 cups of water to the rice and boil on low heat then put a lid on near the end and let it soak up the water

Serve with natural yogurt, poppadoms and mango chutney

Serves 4

The drink is lemon πŸ‹ juice so I use the blended frozen lemon use a small sieve and squeeze out the lemon juice.

Then grate some ginger into it

Too with fizzy water

Add mint leaves

Its a lovely refreshing non alcoholic drink perfect with this curry.

If you want to add alcohol I would recommend gin or rum.

This is a quick and easy meal to make prep time about 15 mins if you have all the spices you just need the yogurt, tomato purΓ©e and your chicken or chickpeas. Tasty and healthy meal for the whole family. Leaves you full and satisfied.
