Syn Free Paprika and Chilli Chickpeas | Slimming World

These Syn Free Paprika and Chilli Chickpeas are my favourite accompaniment to a homemade curry. Filling and satisfying, they add another flavour and texture to a curry whilst still being syn free and delicious.

Syn Free Paprika and Chilli Chickpeas | Slimming World Chicken Curry

This recipe will serve 6 people as a side dish, but can be eaten as a quick lunch dish or as a the main part of a meal between fewer people.

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 Sunflower, Chilli or Garlic flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Paprika and Chilli Chickpeas recipe.

  1. This is a brilliant site. I’ve not long found you, but have tried some of the recipes and very tasty they have been. It’s nice to be able to diet ( or rather change lifestyle) and eat proper nutritious food, rather than constant salads or soups.. My husband can’t quite believe he’s having, “diet food” keep up the good work. I for one really appreciate everything you post. Also I like your rules. My mother always told me if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.
    Regards Kate Turner

  2. I made your syn free chicken Balti was absolutely fantastic looking forward to trying some more of your delicious recipes

  3. Hi can I check if the chick peas can be reheated? I’m making the paprika and chilli chickpeas as a side dish to go with rue syn free curry but it will only be me eating it so I will have loads left for the next day. Am I better just cooking what I need on the day? Many thanks

    1. Hi Shontell
      You can alter the number of servings on the recipe card – the quantities of each ingredient will be adjusted automatically. Might make things easier! There shouldn’t be a problem with reheating leftovers. 🙂
