Does anyone have any nice curry recipes (I'm thinking of making a chicken one). I'm not into creamy sauces, I prefer ones with a bit of a kick.

I'm hoping to make it in my slow cooker, but thought I'd ask you wonderful lot if you had any ideas before I try it on my own!

Hi MrsV, I did have a search but it only brought up 2 and they were creamy/masala types.

I just wondered if anyone had a tried and tested slow cooker one.

I'm sure I'll find something x

My neighbour is Indian and made me the most amazing curry which was only 3 syns per serving (we used a tbsp of oil). I'll see if I can get her permission to post it on here.

It takes a lot of effort and standing over the stove, and then popping it in the oven but the flavours were amazing. There was only one ingredient (black cardamom pods) that I didn't have in my cupboard. It had about 25 ingredients but the taste made my mouth tingle!

Me too! Me too! Mrs V - Meatball Curry sounds tops!

I tend to just put frozen spinach into a suacepan of passata, add seasoning (coriander, cumin etc) boil until the spinach melts and then add mushrooms. I usually add quorn chicken style pieces or fillets if I'm on a green day or chicken or lamb goes well if you're on red as the sauce is free on both. It's a bit saag like really but no oil.

Chicken Curry

Here it is! A lot of steps and a lot of ingredients but worth it! I'm making it tonight for the first time on my own so I'll let you know how it goes and if I wrote down the ingredients and method correctly!

6 syns for the whole lot or 1 HEX A if using olive oil

Indian Chicken
4 chicken thighs (skinless with bone)
1 tbsp oil
1 ½ onions, chopped finely
ginger, chopped (small piece – size of half your thumb)
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
2 black cardamom pods (kali elaichi), whole (I found these in the ethnic spice section at a large Tesco)
4 green cardamom pods, lightly crushed
1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
10 black peppercorns
2 bay leaves
5 whole cloves
½ cinnamon stick
2 thin green chillies, chopped in half width ways
¾ tsp ground turmeric
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp ground cumin
¾ tin chopped tomatoes
¼ tsp garam masala
4 heaped tbsp low fat greek yogurt
2 big handfuls of fresh coriander, chopped

1) Put the oil in a wok or pan and heat. Add the cardamom pods, cumin seeds, peppercorns, bay leaves, cloves and cinnamon stick. Stir for 15-30 seconds to release their aroma.

2) Add onion and cook until softened - 6-7 mins

3) Add garlic, ginger & chillies and cook for about 5 mins. Add a little water if pan dries out.

4) Add the ground spices (except garam masala) and cook for 1-2 mins. (adding water as needed to loosen)

5) Add chicken and brown for about 5 mins.

6) Add the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.

7) Add the garam masala and cook for about 5 mins.

8) Add the yogurt and simmer for a few mins.

9) Add half of the coriander and cook for a few mins. Add a pinch of salt and a pinch of sweetener. (can add sultanas and cashews at this point, if desired)

10) Continue to cook down, adding a little water if necessary. Cook down for about 10 mins.

11) Cover dish with foil and bake in the oven on 170 for about 40 mins.

12) Add a little water at end if depending on the consistency you want. Just before serving, garnish with remaining coriander and a very small pinch of garam masala.
