    I'm quite surprised at that. I thought that dish would have a lot more syns than that! :confused:

    From a proper take away??

    Did you add some veg to make it EE??

    Chicken tikka masala is indeed 14.5 syns on a red and ee day. Only problem with that meal though is that there isnt any 1/3 superfree foods. It can be done within the syn limit though! Hope you enjoyed it :)

    Thats what its synned as in my book have to be careful with the weight though as not all takeaways are the same size portions. I often have an Indian meal but usually go for lower synned ones than that yum yum

    Thanks Sarah-Jayne. Just pointing out that on Red this would be the curry only ... not the boiled rice ;)
