    chop onions and some garlic and fry in either a little olive oil, or frylite. Add curry powder and I use garam masala as well, cook for a few mins on low heat, add chicken (or pork) pieces, and brown off, add a tin of tomatoes and cook slowly for about 40 mins or so, just before serving add some low fat natural yoghurt and some freshly chopped coriander if you have some and enjoy. You only need to count the points for the chicken or pork and for the yoghurt if its not fat free xx

    I did try a recipe last week.
    Meat, onion add vegetable stock, green lentils, curry powder and chili.
    Just add the first 2 in a wok and cook until browned. add 200ml of vegetable stock. Add the lentils curry powder and chili to taste.

    I thought it was lovely and it was just something I whipped up!!

    What about a zero points veg curry? If not for tonight then at least store it for future reference.

    I put in mine:-

    carrots
    onions
    cauliflower & brocolli (you can use any free points veg)
    veg stock cube & water
    curry powder.

    Throw it all in a saucepan and cook it. I add the curry powder close to the end so that I know how much to use.
    I really like it!

    I've also got one for a chicken tikka type too.

    Chicken breasts no skin, cubed.

    Marinade (I usually marinade overnight, but you can do it in the morning to cook that evening):

    Fat free yoghurt, lemon juice, 1 tsp ground cumin, chopped garlic, chopped ginger (about 1 tsp of each), 1 tsp chilli powder.

    After marinading, put on skewers with not too much of the marinade still attached and grill for about 10 mins, turning when browned.

    You can do it with whole skinless chicken breasts, put on a tray (again not too much of the marinade attached) and cook in the oven for about 20 mins.
