    This is how I do my curries - onions, garlic, ginger, madras powder or garam masala (about 2tbsp) all done together in fry light.
    Add a tin of tomatoes, some sweetner and simmer down for 15 mins.
    Then you can either blend it if you like it smooth or leave it as it is.
    Add your prawns or a tin of chick peas is good and heat through.
    Add some natural yoghurt if you like it creamy.

    if you use the prawns as a healthy extra it is free on green as far as I can see......it was tasty, I had left overs for lunch today :)

    Glad you are having fun experimenting.....I have invented some of my fav dishes that way!!

    have you tried chicken tikka? OMG its lush.
    Mainade chicken pieces in fat free yog mixed with tikka powder overnight. Then oven cook in the marinade and serve with rice (extra easy is free, red day add rice as B or green add chicken as b).
    Serve with syn free raita (yog, cucumber and onion mixed)
