If Chips and Curry Sauce is your go-to chip shop order, this one’s for you! Our version of the chippy-inspired classic comes loaded with all the flavours you’re craving, for only 260 calories per portion. 

Much better for your budget than ordering the real deal, our chippy-style recipe uses a simple combination of basic ingredients. By blending together veggies, stock, curry powder and garlic, our homemade sauce comes jam-packed with chippy deliciousness for far fewer calories. 

After we’ve drizzled over the moreish chippy-style sauce, we love to add an indulgent layer of grated cheese. Trust us, it really works! Just be sure to account for the additional calories, if you’re counting.

Our chips are baked in the oven, so we can make them crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle using just a spritz of low-calorie cooking spray.

For even crispier results in quicker time, why not rustle up your chips in the air fryer? (Psst! If you don’t have an air fryer at home yet and you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got a guide to help you out here.)
