    I have a Slimming World Curry book but my I have lent it to my Mum - I'll get it back tonight and post some more recipes from it later. In the meantime:

    Syn Free Chicken Curry
    1 tsp turmeric
    1½ tsp coriander
    1 tsp cumin
    1½ tsp chilli powder
    1½ tsp curry powder
    ½ tsp ground ginger
    3 garlic cloves - crushed
    60ml lemon juice
    125g pot natural yogurt
    100g tomato passata
    226g cubed chicken breast
    1 red pepper - cubed
    Pour mixture into a casserole dish and bake at approx 375 deg for 40 mins or cook on hob, add red pepper and heat over a medium heat until cooked through (approx 20 mins) - stirring frequently.
    Serve with rice and salad.

    Free on a green day using chicken as HE-B
    On a red day – miss out the rice and double the chicken

    Hi again,

    I have looked through the SW Curry book and there is quite a lot to choose from. I have done the complete list below, if you fancy anything in particular please let me know and I will post the recipe(s):)

    Starters:
    Curried parsnip soup
    Veggie bhajis with chilli dip
    Chana dal khichri (spiced rice with split peas)
    Spicy samosas with kachumber
    Grilled tiger prawns
    Lamb koftas
    Tandoori chicken
    Spiced chicken kebabs

    Green Day Main Dishes:
    Gobi chana curry (cauliflower)
    Vegetable & Quorn curry
    Squash and spinach curry
    Mushroom bhaji
    Brinjal curry (aubergine)
    Root vegetable biryani
    Sweet potato curry
    Spicy stuffed aubergines
    Mixed bean and carrot sabzi
    Pork biryani

    Original Day Main Dishes:
    Chicken Jalfrezi
    Pan-fried cod and indian potatoes
    Chicken tikka masala
    Pork vindaloo
    Speedy prawn curry
    Chicken korma
    Classic chicken curry
    Spicy beef wrap
    Lamb rogan josh
    Kofta curry

    Desserts:
    Iced mango gateaux
    Baked figs with spicy amaretto "cream"
    Creamy mango sorbet
    Fruit salad with warm ginger drizzle
    Lemon and apricot delight
    Pistachio and ginger ice

    This list probably won't be any use for this "curry night" (not enough shopping time) but maybe for next time.

    Good luck

    Chicken Rogan Josh

    Serves 4 (free on red/extra easy)

    Ingredients

    2 medium onions finely chopped
    1 tsp turmeric
    3 tsp garam masala
    2 tsp ground coriander
    2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp chilli powder
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Thumbnail worth of fresh ginger finally chopped
    2 cloves of garlic finally chopped
    4 chicken breasts chopped into chunks
    Can of plum tomatoes and some pasata
    Low fat natural yoghurt
    Fresh coriander chopped



    Method

    Fry light a large sauce pan and fry onions until soft; add the ginger and garlic; continue to fry. Add all of the dry herb and spices and mix (if it looks too dry, add some water to lift from bottom of the pan)

    Add chicken to pan and mix until the chicken starts to brown (again add some water if it starts sticking to the bottom of the pan). Add the tomatoes and the passata and mix. Add the yoghurt and mix.

    Turn the heat down on the pan to low and put a lid on the pan and leave for 30 mins

    After 30 mins stir the dish, and leave back on the heat for about 20 mins; remove the lid (to allow the sauce to reduce and thicken)

    When the chicken is fully cooked, mix in the coriander (I tried the sauce without the coriander and thought it tasted mediocre, once the coriander was added, it tasted like rogan josh I get from the take away!)



    I served with mushroom fried rice (fry light pan, fry sliced mushrooms, add cooked rice (drained and cold) and handful of coriander) and the onion bahjees above. Plus had 2 pappadoms (2 syns each for Morrison’s own brand)

    The whole lot I think worked out about £1 per head so a lot cheaper than a take away!

    Erm, I think SW might take exception to people posting loads of recipes from the book. After all it is copyrighted and posting the recipes here means people won't go and buy the book. We wouldn't want to get the board in trouble. Sorry to be a killjoy.

    Sorry Circes, I didn't even think about it because it came free with the Slimming World magazine last year and is not available to buy separately.:sigh:

    However I will not post any more so we don't upset anyone.:)

    Kind regards

    Sorry I thought these were from the Curry Feast book. I'm not sure exactly what the position is with a booklet that comes free with the mag. Possibly copyright still applies though as SW will 'own' the recipes they have developed.

    Just been and bought all of the above ingredients in an attempt to make a Rogan Josh (eeeeek!) am a really bad cook but am hoping to follow the recipe to the letter and fingers crossed it will turn our FAB! ;) However, I bought some Pilau rice and have checked the syns – 7 per pack – not bad but I might go and buy some plain rice instead so it’s free! :D

    Falafel recipe:



    • Serves: 4
    • Prep. time:
    • Cook time: Ready in 40 minutes, plus chilling
    • Total time: 30-60 Minutes
    • Syns per serving:
      • Green: FREE
      • Extra Easy: FREE

    [h=3]ingredients[/h]
    • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
    • 1 carrot, peeled and coarsely grated
    • 2x 400g cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
    • 2cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely grated
    • 2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp chilli powder
    • 1 tsp ground coriander
    • 3 tbsp very finely chopped fresh coriander
    • 1 small egg
    • Salt
    • Low calorie cooking spray
    • Paprika and fat-free natural yogurt, to serve

    [h=3]method[/h]
    1. Place the onion, carrot, chickpeas, garlic, ginger, cumin, chilli powder and the ground and fresh coriander in a food processor. Pulse and process for 1-2 minutes until blended but still fairly chunky in texture.
    2. Transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl. Lightly beat the egg and add to the mixture. Season with salt and, using your fingers, mix thoroughly to combine. Cover and chill in the fridge for 6-8 hours to firm up and allow the flavours to develop.
    3. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment and spray lightly with low calorie cooking spray. Shape the chickpea mixture into 24 bite-sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Spray lightly with low calorie cooking spray and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden and firm. Serve warm, sprinkled with paprika and the yogurt alongside to dip into.
