I thought we could start a thread with Low Calories Recipes, all tried and tasted. Our own recipe book.
Like this, those who would like to lose a few kilos but do not know what to cook, will have a recipe book at the ready (it might take a while to sieve through all the recipes though after a while, but it will be at least, an interesting reading).
Ok, here is the first:
My Chicken Curry (serves 4)
3 diced chicken breast
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
2 peeled, cored and diced green apples (optional)
2 teaspoons of tomato puree
2 tablespoons of curry powder of your choice
a handful of green peas (frozen or else) - optional)
a quarter of a chick peas can (optional)
1 chopped onions and 1 bouquet of coriander.
Salt and pepper and hot sauce if needed.
I usually chop 1/2 of the coriander in the food processor and put it aside. The other half, I chop it in the food processor with the onion, and the curry powder. It makes a nice paste.
In a pan, I pour one teaspoon of oil, just to saute the curry paste I just made then I throw all the other ingredients in it. I cover with cold water (the water is just to cover all the ingredients). I cover and I cook for half an hour or until cooked.
I serve it with the coriander I have set aside, that gives an 'authentic' taste.
I serve either with plain rice, or naan bread (shop brought because I do not have the recipe yet) or turkish/french bread. A green side salad, and voila, Bob is your uncle, a quick meal, not fattening.
NB: If I do not have chicken breast, I replace them with 4 legs or cubed lamb meat or whatever I have in the fridge.
