    Are you sure it's low synage, I like pataks (the best:D) but only use it occassionally.

    You use it like curry powder but it's in paste form!

    I use a couple of tablespoons when I'm making a biryani and it goes a long way...and equalled out over the portions is hardly any syns. Makes a nicer flavour/consistency than the powders, for the biryani anyway!
    It's also nice to marinade your meat in it.

    Hi... ermm I don't know if these will be good enough instructions because I can't find the recipe but I had a really tasty vegie curry recipe. (must have been tasty because normally I hate being meat deprived lol)
    Errrm... It was basically a tin of tomatoes and some curry paste with vegetables and lentils. That isn't what you asked for though.
    I think it was pretty much shove everything in a pan, carrots lentils, squash etc, tinned tomatoes and curry paste (I'd guess at a tbl spoon).

    I'd say if you like tomatoes then cook anything how you would a stew in tomatoes and wack in some curry paste.

    Just don't for goodness sake use the oil!

    I make a marinade with it, add yogurt to the paste coat chicken breast strips and marinade for as long as you can (overnight is great), then remove strips lay on a baking tray pour a little bit of marinade over them, put in the oven for 15-20 minutes (or until cooked through) serve with lettuce, salsa and lemon as a bootiful tikka starter,

    I have recently taken to making all my own curry pastes and sauces from scratch.

    Takes a little more work, but my god... the flavour!! Slimming world give you a lot of the recipes, which are syn free.

    Their kofte meatball recipe in Jan/feb mag was GORGEOUS. Used about 7 diff spices, but my god ... nom nom nom, :) and tbh it didnt take much of an effort to measure them out, and shove them in. Obviously a paste is just shove it in, but often their binded in oil, hence the synage, and if you make them yourself, they can be syn free :)

    add some to soup to give it a spicier flavour. Have also added some to SW quiche, to scrambled eggs etc. I add curry/chilli flavour to most things just to enhance the flavour.
