    Morning all..

    I'm off for a sneaky Indian meal tonight with friends i haven't seen in a while.

    What can i eat that wont do too much damage...

    I know it's not going to be good as there will be copious amount of red wine drunk. :flirt2:

    I think I'll go down the EE route and then i can eat rice with my curry but i will swerve the popadoms and onion bhajis!!!

    The question is....which curry will give me less syns? ;)

    The chicken dhansak is only 6.5 syns and if on an EE day, that and plain boiled rice would be free...delicious!
    Poppadoms are 4.5 syns each and the sauces all carry syns.

    Enjoy! I regularly have a takeaway now that I know I dont have to splurdge all my hard work!

    Hi,
    I tend to have Dhansak as well, but my local Indian is 450g rather than 350g so it's 8.5 syns for me rather than the 6.5 from the book on EE; but still pretty good considering.

    What does a dhansk taste like! I'm a creature of habit and usually always have chicken tikka masala! When I went for an indian last, and was on slimming world, I had a chiken tikka, minus the masala but found it really dry but knew that having the sauce would be disasterous!

    Although its chicken and chickpeas in a curry sauce, its really very nice. Im a creature of comfort also, but I can certainly recommend a dhansak.

    Hi Angela,
    It isn't too hot, but has got a little kick to it and can be a little sweet too sometimes; very scrummy.

    Dhansak is a hot sweet sour curry made with lentils, varies from resturant some being really hot others mild best to say how you like it. The best choice is tandori chicken or tikka chicken or meat because it comes dry with no sauce and thats where all the syns are. If you want to use all your syns on drink then thats the way to go.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I have never heard of Dhansak, but to be fair i just normally order the same thing....Tikka Mosala.
    Am i right in thinking Jalfrezi in 8.5 and if so does anyone know how hot it is? I do like a little kick to my curry lol

    Hi I am a newbie and have been looking at this site the last few weeks as I find a lot more answers on here than the actual SW website:)

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me roughly how many syns would be in a dry chicken Tikka at an Indian, as I had this last week with boiled rice in the hope that it was quite low in syns but want to double check before I order it again?

    Any help would be much appreciated!:D

    Dhansak or rogan josh certainly seem to be the way to go

    How many syns would chicken shashlick be? As there's no sauce and basically it's meat and veg cooked on a skewer, I'd hope it would be low

    Rogan Josh is a tomato based dish ... and absolutely gorgeous :) I normally have a lamb rogan josh with plain Rice 6.5 syns and filling .. or we get take out and i do SW chips/wedges .. *nom* .. Our slimming world group use the local indian resteraunt for "meals out", so the indian now do a "SW" version for us with out the oil, which is even better for us lolol
