    I love the sundar chickpea dahl which is free... anyway, was looking in Morrisons and picked up a can of the bombay potato instead, got home and checked the syns, thinking it would be pretty much free... how wrong I was

    That's exactly why I'd like a SW calculator or something simlar. When out shopping you really don't have an idea how many syns it is until you check online.

    Did you eat it?

    No.. it's still in the cupboard, just wanted to highlight how guessing doesn't work, I just assumed it would be same as chickpea dahl but potatoes in it instead.

    I eat a whole tin of chickpea dahl and rice too... I must be a greedy bum x

    BUt if you looked at the ingredients it would probably have been obvious that it was not syn free - it pays to look a bit closer at the packaging

    Not really circles no...I'll put you to the test, ingredients are listed below - which one is 7.5 syns a tin and which is free....

    Tin 1: XXXXX, water, veg oil, tom puree, curry powder, onions, salt, ginger, garlic, sugar, coriander, maize starch, lemon juice, fenugreek leaves, black mustard seeds

    Tin 2: water, XXXXX, lentils, onions, tom puree, veg oil, maize starch, salt, sugar, tumeric, cumin, caraway seeds, fenugreek, coriander, chilli powder, black mustard seeds.

    Both have veg oil, tin 1 has less kcals, tin 2 has more fat....

    Still obvious????

    Hi Louise

    Circes may have meant the food values i.e. weights, fats, protein etc.

    Have you not considered making your own Bombay Potatoes as they're in the SW Curry book?:)
