    Introduction

    Hi everyone . I have had many requests from friends to put up some authentic Indian recipes that I have been cooking for many years for my friends and family. Since joining slimming world I have adapted all of my recipes to a much more healthier way of preparing curries but still packed with all the flavour !

    I do not want to overload you with info so I will keep it short and simple so its easy to remember. The following tips should help you in all your preparations:-

    Tips

    Spices – As you go over the recipes you will notice that there are some key spices which are used regularly in indian cuisine. If you are fond of making Indian food then it’s a good idea to stock up on some of these, from your local Indian Cash and Carry or local Supermarket in the World Food Section.

    Oil - Majority of Indian Cooking is prepared in Oil or Ghee (clarified butter). Although some curries can be made syn free, I prefer to use 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in mine from my Healthy Extra b choice, or u can add 6 syns for 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Also a good alternative to butter is Flora's Lighter than Light spread (1 tbsp = 1.5 syns), which I have used in some of my recipes where the curry requires a richer taste. When curries are cooked Syn Free without oil, in some cases the spices end up with an uncooked raw flavour. A tablespoon of oil makes a huge impact to the taste and quality of the curry. This is especially true for meat preparations.

    Tomatoes – The base of most curries is done using onions and tomatoes. Good quality tomatoes will make all the difference to the quality and taste of your curry. Any type of plum tomato is always good for flavour. I always prefer to use fresh ingredients as opposed to canned or tomato juices or passata which is more for Italian cooking and sometimes contains basil which is not used in Indian cooking much. A lot of these have a high level of concentrate and are very acidic and some contain sugar which makes the curry sweeter.

    Quantities - Most of my recipes are for serving a whole family, 4-6 people, so the quantities are large. If you are cooking for yourself, the good news is curries keep very well in the freezer, so you can freeze the rest to microwave and eat later in the week .



    1) Spicy Indian Vegetable Soup

    Syn Free
    A Catalogue of Indian Recipes (Bhuna, Jalfrezi, Balti, Madras, Korma and many more)-1-spicy-indian-veg-soup.jpg (click on pic to enlarge)


    Serves 4

    EasyExtra - syn free per serving
    Green – syn free per serving
    Original –syn free per serving (substitute the chick peas for butternut squash or swede)

    Ingredients

    Fry Light orPam Spray
    Half inch ginger shredded
    2 cloves garlic crushed
    X 1 red onion chopped finely (can use regular onion)
    1 x flat tsp cumin seeds
    1 x small green chilli deseeded and finely diced (make sure you remove the seeds)
    1 x small cinnamon stick
    1 x flat tsp fennel seeds
    2 to 3 wholeblack peppercorns
    2 to 3 cloves
    Prepare 1 litre of vegetable stock
    1 x can boiled chick peas drained
    X 2 tomatoes chopped into small cubes
    X 1 green pepper chopped into small cubes
    X 2 celery chopped into small cubes
    Fresh Corriander finely chopped to garnish
    Salt and Pepper to season
    Lemon juice to taste

    Method

    Spray a large saucepan over a medium heat with Frylight or Pam spray and add the onions garlic ginger, green chilli and cumin seeds. Cook for 3 to 4 mins until slightly softened. Now add the vegetable stock, cinnamon stick, fennel seeds, whole black peppercorns and cloves and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to medium low, add the chickpeas, tomatoes, green pepper, celery, cover lid and simmer for 10 minutes. Switch off heat and season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with fresh coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Tips

    1)If you prefer your soup less spicy then u can omit the whole peppercorns and cloves and green chilli.

    2) Feel free to remove the whole spices with a spoon once they are cooked to avoid them coming in your mouth when eating, they are just there to flavour the broth.

    3) Once the broth is made, feel free to add any free vegetables of your choice that you think will go well with this soup. This is a clear soup with wholesome chunky vegetables that are diced into cubes to give you that extra bite and fill you up. Do not over cook them as they are ment to stay crunchy.

    4)To bulk this soup up on G day and EE u can add half mug boiled rice. Also free on all days u can add Quorn style chicken pieces that makes it extra yummy !

    Enjoy !!

    6) Kofta Biryani
    A Catalogue of Indian Recipes (Bhuna, Jalfrezi, Balti, Madras, Korma and many more)-6-kofta-biryani.jpg (click pic to enlarge)

    Serves 4

    Syn Free on EE (on Green using Quorn Mince)

    Ingredients

    1/2 kg basmati rice
    50-75g FatFree Yogurt
    1 small onion
    1 tsp salt(according to taste)
    6 green cardamoms
    2 tbsp garlic paste
    6 cloves
    1 tbsp ex v olive oil (HE b choice)
    ½ tsp yellow food colour
    1 pinch saffron
    ½ tbs lemon juice

    For Meatballs

    250g finely minced mutton or beef
    1 tsp ginger paste
    1-2 green chillies coarsely chopped
    1 medium onion coarsely chopped
    Handful of fresh coriander leaves
    ½ tsp garam masala powder
    1 slice of bread soaked and squeezed to remove water (add syns)
    1 tsp salt

    Method

    To make the meatballs :-

    Put the mince meat and all its spices in a food processor and blend until all the ingredients are mixed well. Form into small meatballs and keep aside. In a pot heat the olive oil and sauté the onions until they start to turn brown. Add all the spices along with a little water to prevent them from burning. Mix well. When the water has dried add ½ cup of water and add the meatballs carefully into it. Cover and allow to cook for about 10 minutes on medium flame until the meatballs are cooked through.

    Simultaneously soak the rice in water for half an hour. Boil the rice with 1 tbsp salt and ½ tbsp. of lemon juice till its ¾ cooked. Drain the water and keep the rice aside. Transfer a little rice to a pot and on top of that add some of the meatballs combo so as to make layers of rice and masala. Make a couple oflayers and then sprinkle some yellow food colour to decorate along with a pinch of saffron (saffron should be soaked in 1 tbsp of water for a few minutes before adding to the rice). Now cover the rice on a low flame for about 10 minutes keeping the pot tightly closed to steam cook. When the rice is done the Biryani is ready.

    Serve with Raita.

    Enjoy !!

    12) Tandoori Chicken
    A Catalogue of Indian Recipes (Bhuna, Jalfrezi, Balti, Madras, Korma and many more)-12-tandoori-chicken.jpg (click on pic to enlarge)

    Serves 6

    Syn Free on Red and EE (Green using x6 Quorn chicken fillets)

    Ingredients

    6 large chicken thigh/breast pieces
    Salt to taste
    6 tbsp Fat free yogurt
    Ginger/garlicpaste
    Lemon juice
    Pepper powder
    Red chilli powder
    Fenugreek leaves
    Garam masala powder
    Cumin powder
    Coriander powder
    Turmeric powder
    Red food colour
    1 tbsp ex volive oil (HE b choice)

    Method

    Wash the chicken. Take a knife and make a few small slits in all of the chicken pieces.

    Small Marination

    In a small bowl, take 1 tbsp chilli powder 1 tsp salt, and squeeze half a lemon mix together. Take this marination and rub into the slits that you made on all the chicken pieces.

    MainMarination

    To make themain marination for the tandoori chicken, in a large bowl take 6 tbsp of fat free yogurt, (average works out to 1tbsp of yogurt per chicken piece). Add 1tsp chilli powder, ½ tbsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper powder, ½ tsp fenugreekleaves, ¼ tsp turmeric, ½ tsp garam masala, 1 tbsp cumin powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, half a lemon juice, mix all the ingredients together. Now add the red food colour, be careful not to add too much just a few drops is required. It’s best to add a drop at a time and see that you get that rich tandoori colour. Now add the chicken pieces one at a time and coat well with the marinade. When all the chicken pieces are covered add 1tbsp olive oil and coat the pieces again, this will give them a nice coating and colour.

    Oven Preparation

    Take an ovenproof dish and to avoid the chicken marinade rubbing off to the bottom of the pan and burning, make a bed of vegetables at the bottom of the tray, diced carrots and celery will work. Nowc arefully place your chicken pieces ontop of the bed of vegetables. Preheat your oven to 230c, place the chicken in the oven to cook for 30 minutes. After 25 mins, keep an eye on the chicken to check if it has cooked. Take a tastetest with your fork to see if its cooked through. Once you are happy, take out the chicken, arrange on a plate with some fried onions (slice some onions in a pan, fry with frylight until golden brown) a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of chaat masala or garam masala. Serve hot.

    Enjoy !!
