    Hi Jen, why not look around the eating out sub forum - I bet there are loads of Indian food ideas on there.
    Enjoy it!

    Well for anyone else planning an Indian meal out I have found that the lowest syn dish in an indian is chicken dhansak - 6.5 syns on an EE day.
    I can have plain rice - free on an EE day!
    Poppadoms are something like 5.5 syns each and 1/4 of a naan is 5 syns too.

    I believe a Rogan Josh is only 6.5 syns too :) Dhansaks can be quite spicy if you don't like it hot! :)

    Oh I was going to have a nose round the eating out section for this. Its my dad's birthday next weekend & we are all going to his fav resturant which happens to be Indian - typical!

    I don't do EE so was hoping if I went for a green day - I could try & order a veg curry & plain rice - going to see what I can find out :)

    I'd always go for a baked dish - but then that's me!!!!
    I went to a Burmese restaurant, they had sauteed spinach with fenugreek seeds, fancied that, so asked them to just steam the spinach.
    Hope that you have a wonderful meal!

    I always have a chicken tikka starter, followed by chicken dhansak (6.5), or chicken jalfrezi (8.5) with plain boiled rice and thats more than enough for me!

    I had an Indian meal on Saturday, and went Green, opting for a yellow dhal with boiled rice and a wholemeal chapati.

    Think it was not too bad (tasted great!) :D

    I don't like spicy food and find dhansak just a little hotter than korma (it is lovely though) but i suppose it depends on the indian have fun just incase you wanted something spicer x

    Well I had chicken tikka starter and then opted for chicken jalfrezi (which was lovely and hot) with bolied rice for 8.5 syns and 1/4 of a naan for 5 syns
    Slightly over the 10 syns for the day but i thouroughly enjoyed it and drank diet coke all night so no syns wasted there!
