We didn’t know what to expect the first time we tried it, but this Syn Free, Low Point and Low Calorie Mushy Pea Curry is actually an amazing substitute for chip shop curry!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Perfect with rice and some Slimming World chips, and the good thing is you can add whatever speed veg you want. We like to add some cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, green beans and mushrooms to ours.
We use chicken breast in our Mushy Pea Curry, but you could just as easily use pork, prawns or just veg if you prefer.

How many Syns are in this Mushy Pea Curry?
This Mushy Pea Curry is Syn Free! Imagine how many Syns you’re saving on a Takeaway version!!
Synning the sweetener in this Mushy Pea Curry
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for this Syn Free Mushy Pea Curry uses 1 tablespoon of sweetener and is divided into 6 portions. So that means there’s no need to add any extra syns on for the sweetener itself.
You can serve it with a whole heap of Speed Foods too – why not choose something from our Slimming World Speed Food List?
This recipe has been adjusted to reflect Slimming World’s changes around SP. It is therefore no longer suitable for SP.

What is Sukrin?
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Syn Free Mushy Pea Curry.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
We use our food processor a lot for loads of different recipes such as this amazing Katsu Chicken Curry!
How do I make this Mushy Pea Curry?
Sauté the onions, garlic and mushrooms in a few sprays of Low Calorie Cooking Spray on a moderate heat in a saucepan.
Add the tinned ingredients, stock cubes, curry powder, chilli powder and Sukrin/honey bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.
While this is cooking sauté the diced meat and all the extra veg in another frying pan.
After 20 minutes remove the curry from the heat and blend until smooth in a food processor.
Season to taste and serve with your choice of accompaniment!
