About this recipe: Adapted from various other recipes found on the internet, I tried this in order to cook dinner for my wife and me last week as part of one of my fast days (when I restrict myself to 600 calories). The actual curry is around 300 calories per portion, and I had it with a couple of tablespoonsful of cooked wholegrain basmati rice (my wife is not on my regime so had more rice, and accompanied it with chutneys and yoghurt). We both thought it was very tasty, and I found it a satisfying meal (although with the rice it added up to two thirds of my daily calorie allowance!).
Serve with rice and/or flat bread (naan, pitta, etc) and chutneys. If it does turn out to be too hot, try stirring in a couple of tablespoons of plain yoghurt just before serving.
Rather than chopped, tinned tomatoes, could used whole plum, or even fresh ripe ones, but latter would need to be skinned, and in both cases they would need to be chopped by hand.
Using the whole spices is optional. If you don't have whole, you could use the following amount of ground:
Same amount of ground cumin
Double the amount of ground coriander
Large pinch of black pepper
The first reviewer must've got something wrong because I've just made this meal for dinner and it was delicious! - 19 Feb 2014
I made this tonight as I'm on a low carb eating plan. I used fresh spice seeds and think I need to cook them out a bit longer but I enjoyed what I had and have enough left for two more meals. I served it with cauliflower and brussels rice which is very low carb. Easy to make and very tasty if you enjoy vegetables and want to keep your carb intake lower. You can google cauiflower rice and I just add brussels, broccoli or courgettes or sometimes all of them together depending on what needs using up! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I hope you don't mind but I've shared it with my eating plan group as we're always looking for new recipes. - 04 Apr 2016
