For some reason, it wasn’t until recently that I thought to ask for the recipe – turns out, it’s totally syn free and the easiest curry to make!

Serve this curry with a salad and Okre. They’re a real “marmite” vegetable but I love them! I like to dress my salad with a dressing made from lightest mayo, vinegar, garlic and black pepper – really cuts through the spice of the curry.


Why not try some paprika and chilli chickpeas as a side dish for this – recipe can be found here.

I find that by having the salad & chickpeas, you don’t need to have quite so much rice. That means you’re cutting down on the amount of carbohydrates you eat and you’re adding some speed.

You can even have this on an SP Day, if you just serve it with the salad and chick peas, or maybe try some cauliflower rice.

This curry certainly warms up a chilly weekend, and beats buying a takeaway!!

  1. I’ve just bought that instant pot and think it’s great. I was wondering whether this could be cooked using it and if so how long would you cooked it for. Thanks

    1. Hi Mary
      Curry powder is free, it’s the curry spice blends that can carry syns, as in many cases they contain sugar. Curry powder only contains ground spices (usually turmeric, chilli powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, ground ginger and pepper) which are all free.

    1. Hi Kirsty
      We’ve not tried it in the slow cooker, but I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work. It would probably need 5 to 6 hours

    1. Hi Jude
      If you’re on mobile you should see a big green button saying ‘Click HERE To Read More’ if you click that it will take show you the rest of the recipe

  2. Am I reading this right, simmer for 1 hour with lid on then an additional 30 mins for sauce to reduce with lid off. Or is it an hour in total and last 30 mins without lid
