    Hello all,

    I am going out for a 50th birthday meal this evening at an Indian restaurant and was wondering if any one can let me know which ones are best to avoid and ones which I can enjoy without using too many syns?

    Chicken dansak is the best to have (61/2) , your creamy curries like korma, passanda and chicken tikka massala (14) are going to be higher

    Naan breads are 20 syns where poppadoms are 4 each.

    Dont forget to syn any dips/chutney

    Bhajis are 8 and samosas are pretty high too. Your meat and salad starters will be much lower.

    you can have plain boiled rice as free, pilau is 2 1/2 syns I think

    Hiya cheers for info.... I ended up having chicken wrapped in spinach with portion of I think was pilau rice not as bigger portion you would usually have mind you with some vegetables. There was a small amount of tomato based curry sauce too. A quarter /small piece of cheese naan and half a popadum. For starter had prawn cocktail so would need to syn sauce. I did have a few vodka and diet cokes. All in all didn't really over indulge as I would normally do:) x

    A chicken jalfrezi is a nice curry to have if you like curries a little hotter, not bad for 8.5 syns either, i always have with boiled rice when out at a restaraunt, find it hard to resist onion bhajis though! x

    Does anybody know how many syns are in a saag?

    I'm going for a curry on Sunday and I'm dreading it a little as I love curry, especially the pickle tray and popodums, I feel like I could eat a hundred! Oooh and a peshwari naan, yum! A guess a peshwari will have a lot of syns, boo! This is the first time Ill be having a restaurant curry since getting back on sw so I'm worried, I really want to be strong but it's going to be hard :-( if anybody has any survival tips I would be grateful to hear them!

    Thanks all xx
