This mild low-fat curry recipe is perfect for all the family. A great way to introduce children to curries. It is a perfect mixture of spices to be delicate and still flavoursome. Easily made vegetarian for anyone who prefers not to eat meat.
The importance of adding vegetables to your low-fat curry recipe
Vegetables are low in calories compared to their density. This essentially means that they fill you up with very few calories.
The more vegetables you have in a meal either as a side dish or mixed in with the meal itself the lower-calorie the meal tends to be. A filling but low-calorie meal is perfect for weight loss.
All my recipes include vegetables where possible but do feel free to add more as an accompaniment when you can. Always choose vegetables that you enjoy because otherwise you will begrudge eating them and are more likely to before long stop cooking them at all.
Making a meal vegetarian easily
An easy way to make a meal vegetarian is to swap the meat for a vegetarian alternative such as Quorn. Other possible swaps are for jackfruit, lentils, chickpeas, mixed beans or just extra vegetables.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 10 years old and enjoy a huge variety of food so whatever you do, don’t let being vegetarian mean you need to eat a boring diet.
Making this recipe with Quorn
It is really easy to adapt this recipe to use Quorn, as a vegetarian myself I do it often. It is always worth remembering that Quorn takes less time to cook when substituting it for chicken.
Check out my selection of Quorn recipes, all perfect for all the family whether vegetarian or not, some are vegan too.
Using frozen chicken
Chicken for this mild low-fat curry recipe or any other chicken recipes should never be cooked from frozen, there are so many issues with this that risk food poisoning. If you have just realised you only have frozen chicken there I have lots of tips to safely defrost chicken check them out in my defrosting chicken guide.
Why this mild curry is perfect for dieters
This is a mild curry perfect for all the family but as it uses low calorie ingredients and lots of vegetables it is great if you are trying to lose weight too
It is of course important to check yourself any plan you follow and remember all nutritional information and ingredients are found in the recipe card below.
