How many Syn are in this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry?

It’s important that you use flour of some sort in this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry recipe, as this is what stops the Korma from splitting.

2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry | Slimming World-1

We used Sukrin Coconut Flour, which is reduced fat and only 3.5 Syns for 25g, but you can use any brand, but don’t forget to check the Syns.

If you don’t have coconut flour you could use Almond flour or even normal plain flour.

If you don’t use flour and the Flora Light – this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry will split. You really don’t want it to split!

The 2 tablespoons of Flora Light is 4 Syns worth.

These are the only things that need to be Synned which means that this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry recipe works out at 2 Syns per portion.

There are a few things you will need to make this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry recipe.

The Chicken

For the chicken breasts, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers.

They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

The chicken breasts are lovely, plump and don’t have that horrid vac-pack smell when you open them up!

We also have a few exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.

Coconut flour

If you’re a regular visitor to the site you’ll know we use coconut flour quite a bit, as has a lower Syn value than regular wheat flour or desiccated coconut.

We tend to use Sukrin Coconut Flour as it is reduced fat and has a lower Syn value, but there are lots of other different brands to choose from, but don’t forget to check the Syns as it can vary!

A Food processor or hand blender

This 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry recipe needs to be pureed to give the dish that thick, rich, creamy sauce that is associated with a traditional Korma Curry.

We use a Kenwood Food Processor like this one from Amazon.

You could also use a hand or stick blender like this Tower Hand Blender.

You can get this on amazon.

Frylight

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

The Avocado or Coconut flavours are ideal for this 2 Syn Chicken Korma Curry recipe. We like to use the Avocado!

Karahi or Balti Dishes

  1. Alternative method

    If you have a soup maker you can use that.

    Saute onions garlic and ginger till light brown. Add spices. Cook out for 5 mins. Put in Soup makers with every thing else except chicken.
    Put on smooth cycle.

    Transfer to pan. Add chicken. boil for 15-20 mins. add peppers and Jobs done.`

  2. Made this tonight for the whole family. My son was a little late arriving, so I popped his portion into takeaway containers.
    I was so chuffed as he didn’t realise it was home made.
    A delicious, thick, creamy texture and took 45 mins from prep start to eating.

    Easy to make. I will definitely make this again –
    And soon too.

  3. Unfortunately, I cant eat BNS as its on my list of no-no foods for my IBS. Can you perhaps suggest an alternative? Many thanks for such a gorgeous recipe!

    1. Hi Angela
      Does that mean you can’t tolerate any food from the squash family, pumpkin, marrow etc?
      You could try a root veg such as swede, which should mash down in a similar way, or possibly sweet potato. We’ve been working for some time to get the recipe right, so we can’t guarantee that it would be as successful, I’m afraid.

    1. Hi Francesca
      We’ve used Flora light as it makes the dish much lower in Syns. If you use butter instead, you will need to adjust the Syns accordingly.

  4. Oh wow! I used sweet potato as couldn’t find my bns in the bottom of the freezer, but i don’t think it mattered. This recipe is ruddy lovely. Even my husband, who hates curry, cleared his plate. Thank you, I will be doing this again and again.

    1. Hi Charlotte
      Thanks for your comments, so glad you enjoyed it!
      Would you mind rating the recipe on the site? (Use the stars on the recipe card.) We would be super grateful!! x

    1. Hi Jen
      Ground cloves are listed in the korma spice mix ingredients. You can find jars of ground cloves in the herbs and spices section of your supermarket. 🙂

  5. I’ve just made this. As a new mum I need things to be super quick, I used the instant pot adjusting the method slightly. I add loads of veg too – cauliflower, mushrooms, root veg. All the veg was frozen – Asda’s scratch cook – tasted amazing and not difficult to do. I used the one pan and my vitamix blender to blitz the spices first when it was dry, then everything went in after. Thank you for taste testing and saving me the trouble. I’ve had some epic fails with SW recipes, watery or tasteless and it costs money and time that could be spent elsewhere! This recipe was spot on. Thank you

    1. Hi Stacey
      So glad you enjoyed it. We always test and taste our recipes before they go live on the website to make sure that they work and taste good. 🙂

    1. Hi Steve
      The coconut with vanilla will be fine. (You could also use 200ml natural fat free yogurt with 4 drops of coconut essence and a tsp of sweetener, as detailed in the recipe list.)

  6. Omg was sceptical but finally got round to trying couldn’t find Muller with coconut or coconut essence so used vanilla yoghurt and found dessicated coconut at back of cupboard so added 25g of that couldn’t find syn value in book so allowing 10 Suns making approx 4.5syns a portion aesthetically to me Norma is lighter so was tempted to add more yoghurt but didn’t my eleven year old ditched pizza to join me in eating this i had with spring greens to up speed and also sweet potato pakoras blooming delicious thanks
