    Hi there, thanks for your replies, I hope when you try this dish you enjoy as much as i did! I do have another curry recipe, though I havent yet tried it myself so dont know what it is like. Here goes...

    Chicken Pasanda 8 pro points per serving. Serves 4.

    1 onion - sliced
    2 garlic cloves crushed
    500g chicken
    1tbsp mild curry powder
    1 veg stock with 400ml boiling water
    25g desicated coconut
    25g ground almond
    150g greek yogurt
    15g flaked almond.

    1. fry onion and garlic for 5 minutes, add chicken and fry for further 5 mins.
    2. stir in curry powder and corriander.
    3. pour on stock and coconut and almonds and heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 mins.
    4. Spoon in the yogurt and stir. Heat gently and serve.

    Add rice for extra points.

    If anyone has a bash at this let me know what its like please, as like I say I havent yet tried this one.
    Thanks x

    Tried the tikka masala and have to say it was fantastic. Best home made curry ive made. Completely forgot the creme fraiche first time and was still lovely.

    Going to have to try the pasanda at some point that looks awesome too.

    Thanks for sharing these recipes

    Great recipe! I love indian food but struggle to find a list of pro point values specifically made for indian food. Do you know if there is a list available with the pro point values? I would appreciate it. Thanks
