    I made a low pro point korma with low pro point veg samosa, low point sag with rice and homemade raita dip. Very lovely, mild tasting but you can add more spice to hotten it up! I'm attempting onion bhaji next x

    I was on WW PPs but have now switched to calorie counting.
    I love Southern Baked Chicken - a low pp version of KFC. The recipe is in the current ww magazine. Add a lot more spices though than the recipe states to liven it up. Have it with some oven chips and a bit of sweet chilli sauce for dipping and you really feel like you are having a treat.

    Chorizo and bean chilli, dead easy and so tasty! Two uncooked chorizo sausages, slice them thinly then slice the slices in half, fry them off for a couple of minutes, no oil need. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, tin of kidney beans, tin of butter beans, chilli powder (however much you like!) and 100mls of water. Mix it up and simmer for 10 mins. It's 6pp per serving (this recipe makes enough for 4) and i serve it with some rice x

    Make your own chips - costs nothing more than the potato you use. IIRC 200g raw potato is 4pp and makes loads of chips! Nom! You can season with whatever you fancy, I usually do salt and pepper, my bf loves garlic salt, we've had paprika, chilli, oregano...

    And tortilla pizzas are good too. Top with loads of veg or low pointed stuff like ham or prawns :) xx

    When you make your own chips do you par boil them first? I've tried a few times to make my own chips and they're never right, too dry or undercooked or too thin or too thick! I'm quite a fussy chip eater obviously!!

    I do :) But only for 5 minutes, leave them for 10 to dry a bit or dab with kitchen roll to dry. Works for me and I'm usually fussy with chips.

    What LittleMissThin said :) 5 mins is enough and They taste yum. If you're doing skinny chips, only boil for about 3 mins as they go really mushy (la la la I never did that...)

    I always end up with mine too potato-y for my taste. :( I love skinny chips but I can never cut them skinny enough or chip shaped so half the time end up with fat wedges that everyone but me likes.

    I love having quorn chilli and then serving it in peppers with couscous. The ww jar of chilli sauce is good and it's quick to make.
