We didn’t know what to expect the first time we tried it, but as it turns out this Syn Free Mushy Pea Curry is an ideal substitute for chip shop curry.
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 Syn Free Mushy Pea Curry, but you could just as easily use pork, prawns or just veg if you prefer.

When ever 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 or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Mushy Pea Curry recipe.
Synning the sweetener in this Syn Free 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.
What is Sukrin?
We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.
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.
