    OH has just mentioned having an Indian meal delivered tonight so I want to know what I can have. I normally have a Korma, would this be allowed due to the coconut?
    If not what else could I have that's creamy and not too spicy? I'll have a saag bahji instead of rice etc.

    • 2 drops Almomd Extract (Not essence)
    • 1 Tablespoon toasted almond slices
    Passanda:

    • 3 Chicken Breats cubed
    • 1 Tin evaporated milk
    • 4oz ground almonds
    • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds
    • 4oz Thick Greek Yogurt
    • 4oz double cream
    • 2 Tablespoons tomato puree
    • 3 Tablespoons Mango chutney
    • Quarter of an onion finely chopped.
    • 2 Teaspoons Curry Powder
    • Half Teaspoon Chilli Powder
    • 3 Finely Chopped Cayenne Chillies
    • 4 Cloves Crushed Garlic
    • 2 inches Root Ginger grated
    • 5 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
    • 4 Tablespoons roughly chopped coriander leaves
    • 1 Tablespoon whole coriander leaves
    • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric
    • 1 teaspoon Garam Massalla
    Butter chickem:

    • 1 dessertspoon dried crushed chillies
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced root ginger
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 5 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
    • 125g (4¼ oz) natural yoghurt
    • 500g (1¼ lb) skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, cubed
    • 125g (4¼ oz) butter
    • 2 red peppers, sliced
    • 2 onions, thinly sliced
    • 4 tablespoons double cream
    • good handful chopped fresh coriander
    All 3 dishes are very similar, I guess evaporated milk is a no no.
    Also, tandori stuff would be ok wouldnt it?

    I have, although only from Asda, not a real authentic one.
    I think I will go for that one Rainbow, the one from Asda was lush so I imagine one from the Indian will be super lush :)

    Im not a big fan of supermarket curries, they are always a bit sad.

    It comes in a hot iron bowl thing, really simmering to hell, its sooo yummy.

    Ps.. I hope you are happy with yourself.. I am now desperately craving indian food.. not sure my steak and salad for tea is going to cut it now. :rotflmao: xx

    I never trusted any takeaways or restaurants when I was on induction, But saying that I do theink they are all much more carb/cal aware these days.

    Well I am paying for my gluttony.. out of ketosis, very squiffy tummy, generally feeling tired and grumpy.
