Thai Green Curry

#3
know this is an old old thread, but was looking for syns for the thai curry pastes you can buy from asda. we have a red one, before slimming world i wouldnt have thought of syns but come to think of it, wonder if its syns? ill have to have a look at the ingredients.

anyway, for thai curries, i use extra light philli, chicken breast pieces, peppers onions and mushrooms and some basmati or wild rice for the side. it really is lovely, a lovely alternative as coconut milk is so high in fat.

I made a Thai green curry yesterday using extra light soft cheese. I cooked the chicken, added 220g of extra light soft cheese , Tesco Thai green curry paste (taste preference but 1 tbsp 1 syn), 4 tbsp skimmed milk. Mix till all melted and warm then I served it on egg fried Brown rice. Tastes lovely and a low syn alternate. 1 hexa for cheese as served 2 and milk and depending on plan can be used on all plans. I was on green so measured my chicken, if on red measure rice and if doing ee stick in super free veg.

Mmmm dont think I would like that either to be honest. Someone in our group makes a coronation chicken with orange mullerlight, sounds horrible to me, but then again, I dont like coronation chicken anyway!And pos bird, I like curries hot hot hot too, but not thai ones. But buy me a lamb vindaloo and I'm your friend for life ha ha

Yes all sauces and pastes like this have syns. You can work them out from the nutritional info using 1 syn for every 20 calories :)
i did look it up in the end, 1 syn for tablespoon and that tablespoon went around 4 people lol so quarter of a syn plus the extra light philli which i weighed to be safe

I did find it mild and I got the recipe from the same site. I like mine spicy.
use the red paste :) its spicy. the green one is like lemon grass and funny things, so it aint spicy at all. im a wuss i prefer the green lol the one we had this week though we used red and it was hot
