As you will see in my introduction to my lentil dhal curry recipe, I have become somewhat of a superfan when I comes to Sri Lankan curries. Never had I had such a variety of fresh and interesting dishes in lovely perfectly sized portions. Each different dish leave your mouth tingling with flavour and the variety of fish dishes has really opened up my imagination.
I love try new pizza toppings and one of my favourites to have when I’m eating out is a Chicken Tikka Pizza. I therefore couldn’t wait to try and make my own healthy version so that I could indulge in it at home, guilt free.
I recently visited my first ever Thai restaurant (having avoided them as a Weight Watcher because of the whole full fat coconut milk danger) and was absolutely bamboozled by the menu. Not wanting to get something I’ve tried before I decided to go for the Panang Curry as it was described as a dryer curry than your regular Thai red curry (so I assumed less fatty coconut milk). What a revelation it was, it was truly amazing!! Full of gorgeous flavour, not too saucy and so moreish it was unbelievable. As soon as I finished I knew it has to go straight to the top of my list of recipes to make Weight Watchers friendly.
This is a really delicious curry which is both really easy to make and doesn’t contain too many different spices/ingredients. The chicken really benefits from marinading in the fridge for a while however I only marinaded mine tonight for around 1 hour (I’m never organised enough to do it the day before) and it was lovely! This recipe requires hardly any preparation and it’s a lovely change to your usual Indian Curry. I served it mine with a small portion of rice (included in the points) and one of Morrison’s mini garlic and coriander pittas (for an extra 5sp, a weight watchers pitta would be great too) and a large dollop of fat free natural yoghurt on top.
My friend made a gorgeous curry for me one night while I was at uni (feels like a lifetime ago now!!) and when I later asked for the recipe,she couldn’t find it! The only thing she could remember were the spices that were in it. It was so nice that I fiddled about for a while and came up with my own version of the recipe and it was even better!!
