    Hi!

    I have searched for this but can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.
    I'm going to the theatre tonight with my parents and they plan to have a takeaway after. I'm fine with this as I've planned for it but don't want to go silly (only two popadoms then boooo) I've looked in my book n fancy a rogan Josh but it only refers to lamb rogan Josh. Now am I just being thick or will it b the same syns in a chicken one as lamb or more or less? Bit confused (or maybe just stupid!)

    Thanks guys

    Sounds lovely.
    Chicken meat is a little lower in fat than lamb meat so logically the Syns would be less but personally I would count the Syn value as the same as the lamb to keep yourself on track.
    Try going for plain boiled rice
    Hope this helps. :D

    I would count it as lamb just to be on the safe side of the synage. As jilly said plain boiled rice is a good option. Hope your enjoy your curry and have a good night :D

    I'd agree that whilst lamb tends to be fattier, I'd go with the higher syns just to be on the safe side. Can I ask how many syns in a popadom? We're off for an Indian tommorow - I usually have the spiced mixed grill.

    I had papri chaat as a starter at an indian restaurant yesterday but no idea how many syns it would be. It's basically fried crispy discs (the main offender) and then covered in plain yogurt, coriander chutney and a few chick peas. Any ideas?

    I got chicken rogan josh at an indian meal last weekend and counted it as the same as the lamb because I couldn't find the chicken one. HTH x
