Healthy Curry Recipe

If you are looking for a healthy curry recipe, you've landed in the right spot! 

Healthy Curry is incredibly easy to make at home and can taste just as delicious as the not-so-healthy versions that are often laden with extra fat.  Read on for some top tips on making your curry recipe healthy and for a rundown of all our favourite healthy curry recipes. For Weight Watchers Smart Point Recipes, our recipe booklets will guide you and if you follow Slimming World, you will be pleased to know that our spice blends are Syn Free.

Healthy Curry Recipe Top Tips

Lean Protein: Enjoy lean protein sources like chicken breast, turkey, fish, tofu and lentils to fill and satisfy without going overboard on calories in the curry.

Add Fibre and Nutrition with Vegetables: Use a variety of colourful fresh veggies: carrots, courgettes, broccoli florets or bell peppers to bulk up the curry without piling on the calories. Spinach is another good vegetable choice for its rich taste and nutrient value, as well as the fact that you can add this to any healthy curry recipe just before serving and it will wilt in seconds.

Choose Whole Grains: Serve with a variety of whole grains like brown rice or quinoa to have positive effects on appetite and digestion.  Or choose cauliflower rice as an alternative.

Use Healthy Fat: Instead of cooking with things like animal fat or butter, consider using heart-healthy oils and avocado oil to cook your curry.  Coconut oil is a great contender.  Or use an oil-spray to minimise the oil in the dish.

Consider Portion Control: Control your portion sizes to avoid overeating. Use smaller plates and bowls to serve.

Limit Added Sugars - Use a homemade spice mix in place of some store-bought pastes which may contain high levels of added sugars. A pure spice blend with no added salt or sugar or fillers will be SYN free on Slimming World.

Include Healthy Extras in your meal: Add extra protein, texture and fiber to your curry by adding nutritious ingredients such as chick peas, lentils, beans or nuts.

Use Less Salt: Reduce the amount of salt in your curry by using both low-sodium chicken stock or coconut milk.

Use Coconut Milk instead of cream: If you love a creamy chicken korma or chicken tikka masala, consider using coconut milk in place of cream to achieve the lovely creamy texture.

Use Your Senses: Slow down when you eat the curry and savour each bite. Pay attention to what your body is telling you! When you know whether it's hungry or full (or even just a bit peckish) at a given time, go by what your own physical sensations are trying to say.

Following this tips will maximise your healthy curry recipe.  And with pre-made, perfectly balanced spice blends, you can still have your favourite healthy chicken curry on the table in 30 minutes.
