Low Fat Indian Curries

By WLR Staff, Julie Howard

Many of the ingredients used in Indian cooking are known to be beneficial to health. But the traditional UK-style takeaway can also be very high in fat and calories.

Our Indian Feast provides 5 low fat recipes proving curry doesn't have to be dripping with fat to be delicious and filling.

Chicken CurryIndian Chicken Curry

A quick and simple chicken curry, low in fat but high in taste. This medium curry goes great with the Spinach Pilau and a dollop of mango chutney.

Lamb Masala KebebsLamb Masala Kebabs

Another quick and easy Indian recipe, but you do need to allow for marinating time. Well worth it as the meat will be tender and bursting with flavour when it’s done. Serve as a starter (would make six portions) with the Cucumber and Mint Raita, or have as a very satisfying main course with the Indian Vegetable Curry.
