    Yes have an EE day or a Green Day (pick a vegetable curry).

    If you are going to an Indian its best to stick to a curry which has a tomato based sauce. This is usually the chicken bhuna, but check the menu. It will usual say what its with..... "tomato sauce with onions etc....".

    Probably best to stay away from Naan Bread but have lots of boiled rice which is free on EE and Green!

    If you fancy a poppadom....

    Or you can just have tandoori chicken, or plain chicken tikka (NOT masala) and they're free on red & EE. (I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

    It's my parents wedding anniversary on Friday and I'm taking them to their fave Indian as a treat. I was thinking of doing a Red day on Friday and just having tandoori chicken and salad. Or am I better off doing EE and having one of the lower syn curries and plain boiled rice.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Shame but sauceless indian chicken isn't free. They use a lot of oil and ghee in their cooking which takes the syns through the roof very quickly.
    You can ask them to make it without but most food is prepared earlier in the day.

    Chicken Bhuna is 11 syns... the best thing to have is a chicken dhansak which is 6.5, I had one Fri night and it was really tasty, quite sweet but with a very spicy kick

    Which of the tomato based ones are least spicy? I used to always have tikka masala, the really bad creamy ones are my type of thing normally as i dont like spice. Thanks

    A bhuna isn't too spicy, and I had a chicken Rogan last week and that wasn't at all spicy, just had lots of flavour. Just make sure you tell them you want it mild and then they should alter the level of spice for you
