    Chinese or india takeaway?

    Hi everyone
    Thinking of having a takeaway this eve but cant decide on chinese or indian?
    If i go chinese it would be vegetable chow mein and if i go indian it would probably be chicken dhansak ( normally it would be veg biryani and korma sauce but i know that would be wayyyy too many syns)

    Does anyone know the syn values of the above?

    Thank you!

    I know a chicken dhansak is 6.5! With boiled rice, or pilau is around 2/2.5 I think! I've got a feeling that chow me in is around 7 but I'm not totally sure! What did you go for?! My OH works for a curry house at the moment so I am pretty much living and breathing curry syn values

    It is, I think lovemycat was saying the dhansak was 6.5 syns with boiled rice, pilau rice would be 2 or 2.5 syns extra.

    I thought I'd have to say goodbye all together to Indian take aways. What is dhanska like? I would normally have gone for korma/masala which I know is way too high! What would something like tandoori chicken be like for syns?

    Hi Corina, im the same i would normally have gone for Korma. I find the dhansak is actually very nice, its kinda sweet with a nice variety of flavours! its my new favourite lol! I just did a quick google search on syns in tandoori chicken and its coming up at 9 syns!
    You could also try making your own sw tandoori chicken (again i googled and it came up staight away)
